Volunteers Needed for the North Idaho LEGO Robotics Championship

Friday, December 6 2013


Idaho 4-H is looking for volunteers to help Judge and Referee the North Idaho FIRST LEGO League State Championship in Memorial Gym at the UI Saturday, Jan. 11. Thirty-six FIRST LEGO league teams, comprised of up to ten 9-14 year old students will be competing in an exciting table-top game and presenting their team’s ideas and solutions to this year’s challenge. Each year teams are tasked to build and program a robot from LEGO components, investigate a real world problem, and develop an innovative solution to that problem using scientific information and engineering principles. Judges will interview teams to determine how well they have accomplished these goals. Referees will oversee the robot game and compile team scores. If you’d like to volunteer for this dynamic, hands-on, problem-solving extravaganza register here: www.extension.uidaho.edu/4h/robotics/volunteer.asp
