FIRST LEGO League Semifinal in Slovakia for the Third Time


FLL childrenDo you have any small fans of new technologies at home? Have your students already peeked into the secrets of source code and programming? Do your small handymen like to find out how things work?

If by any chance you find yourself in Košice on Friday, February 12, do visit with us at the Kunsthalle in Košice. The FIRST LEGO League Central European South-East Semifinal 2015/2016 will be held there on that day.

21 teams of students from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania will compete in Košice to advance in the FLL Central European Final. Slovakia will be represented by 12 teams from six regional tournaments.

Visitors will have a chance to see handy LEGO robots with clever constructions and follow their battles in the Robot Game. However, the presentations of the results of research projects will be equally interesting. The best FLL presentations feature cleverly conceived scenarios, scenes, costumes and genuine research.

FLL Research project

This year’s theme: "Trash Trek" may seem easy at first sight. But it can be even more difficult to come up with something innovative, unconventional and never seen before. Every year, the best of the best projects include truly resourceful inventions and interesting innovations.

FLL teamIf you can manage to find some time for this tournament, you will experience a day full of fun, interesting experiences and the thrill of competition. Throughout the day you will meet groups of children who have achieved something terrific, learned to resolve difficult assignments, and not only about how LEGO robots work, but also how to set them in motion on the playing field. They have also learned how to publicly present their work and their strengths and to work as a team.

Every year, the FIRST LEGO League global robotic competition unites thousands of handy children from 10 to 16 years of age. These young people complete various assignments and improve their technical skills in terms of the construction and programming of robots, while developing their presentation, communication and teamwork skills.

This will be the third time in which Slovakia has hosted the International South-East Semifinals. Bratislava hosted the competitors in 2010, and in Žiar nad Hronom followed suit in 2012. Slovak teams regularly advance to the FLL Central Europe Finals, and we believe that the same will happen on Friday, February 12.
