LEGO League (FLL) competitions here in Nova Scotia and test their programming skills on some of the actual challenges facing teams in this year’s theme. http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge

Mike Duggan of NSCC will be hosting walk-in sessions about LEGO robotics during which he and other NSCC faculty members will be demonstrating how to construct and program a LEGO robot using a PC.  Visitors will then have an opportunity to assemble, program and test the active movement of their small LEGO robot.
