Robo-showdown challenges student Lego fans in Hillsboro, Ore.
from The Oregonian
The robo-showdown, children making robots in 2 minutes and 30 seconds, was the first of four challenges that 380 kids participated in at the Intel-sponsored First Lego League Championship Hillsboro, Ore. Competitors were the winners of last year's preliminary rounds, which drew 3,400 students from Oregon and Southwest Washington. The event's Body Forward theme pushed students to investigate topics in biomedical engineering — albeit through Legos. The event aims to change how the participating 9- to 14-year-olds view the world.
