Note: The course for the challenge will be similar but not the same as that at this site!
Youth from different schools and organizations throughout Missouri participate in the Challenge. In addition to building and programming LEGO robots, they also learn about different sensors (e.g., light sensor used to track the black line). This gives them an exposure to how such sensors are used in real world devices (for example: light sensor used in the cars), and how they can be integrated and programmed into systems to accomplish useful tasks.
Impact since 2006: 2,081 students from grades 2-7.
