The Magic Bees Team— competing in the First Lego League Junior (FLL JR.) Egypt Finals— was qualified for the FIRST Robotics Championship, held on April 19- 22, in Houston, USA.
First Lego League Junior (FLL JR.) Egypt Finals was held on January 29-30, sponsored by TECHNOFuture, at the Bibliotheca Alexandria (BA), Egypt. A number of 150 teams—comprising 1100 students from nine Egyptian governorates—took part, providing 150 scientific researches and robot designs. The teams were evaluated according to three areas: teamwork, scientific research, robot designing and programming.
FLL JR is the first competition in the world in the field of scientific research, robot designing and programming for primary school students between 6 and 10 years old, where thousands of children all over the world are taking part. The competition idea is to present real problems facing our world today, where young participants form teams to find solutions through conducting scientific research on the competition theme, designing and programming a moving robot model and presenting search results on a Show Me poster that each team designs.
FIRST is the oldest and largest student robotics program in the world; more than 25 years ago, FIRST became a game changer in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) world. For years, FIRST teams have celebrated engineering and technology at the FIRST Championship. This year, more than 50 countries are joining at the FIRST Championship.
