UTEP Hosts LEGO Championship and Robot Battle

Thinkstock

Get your LEGOs out! UTEP is hosting its annual LEGO League Championship and the first noncompetitive robotics scrimmage in collaboration with the El Paso STEM Foundation.


Both events are part of the annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) robotics competitions that give students real-world engineering experience.
This year’s theme, “Nature’s Fury,” will challenge elementary and middle school participants to explore the awe-inspiring storms, earthquakes and waves produced in nature and how they can be prevented. Teams will have the opportunity to craft highly intelligent approaches to preparation, safety and reconstruction when faced with the destructive energy of natural events.
The event is free and open to the public at Memorial Gym on UTEP’s campus from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.

For the first time, UTEP and the El Paso STEM Foundation will host a friendly scrimmage from 12:30-1:30 p.m. for high school students preparing for the regional FIRST Robotics Competitions in February and March.
