STARBASE ROBINS and the Museum of Aviation are sponsoring the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Super Regional robotics tournament on Saturday, January 5, 2013.

To celebrate the tournament, STARBASE ROBINS invites you to build an original creation using LEGO (or similar) bricks and parts. E-mail a picture of your creation (and include the builder if you like) to with the following information:

First Name
Age (over 18 will be “adult” and over 60 will be “senior”)
Title of creation
School/Grade (if applicable)
City, State, Country

STARBASE ROBINS staff and volunteers will post the pictures of creations on the STARBASE ROBINS Facebook page

Participants may submit up to three creations. The first day for submissions is October 19, 2012 and the last day for submissions is January 4, 2013.

How about build a LEGO creation with someone age 60 or older? The theme of this year’s FLL robotics tournament is “Senior Solutions.” Teams are challenged to come up with solutions to improve the quality of life for seniors (people age 60 and older) by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities.

About the FIRST LEGO League Super Regional robotics tournament:

The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League is an international program that couples hands-on robotics activities with a competition like environment. A team is allowed a maximum of 10 players ages 9-14, with a major focus on team building, creativity and problem solving skills. Each year’s competition consists of a challenge with a different theme. Teams have 8 weeks from the September challenge announcement to analyze the mission, then design, program and test an autonomous robot to complete the mission in competition. Students use Lego MINDSTORM kits for the competition. In addition to the robotic portion, the competition also requires the teams to complete a research project relevant to the theme.
