Competition in programming Lego robots in the USA, in the city of California: Western Edge FIRST LEGO League Open was attended by 5 students from the Štefan Moyses High School in Moldava nad Bodvou. This worldwide competition is sponsored by the organization FIRST LEGO League.
Last year, the students advanced to the national finals for the first time, and this year they managed to advance to the world finals, which they participated in in the already mentioned California from 31.05.2024 to 02.06.2024.
82 teams from countries around the world took part in the competition, where there was extremely strong competition in various competition topics and innovative projects. This edition was officially named as MasterPiece, so all robotic missions and innovation projects were dedicated to arts and hobbies.
At the Western Edge Open championship, in addition to the aforementioned, an additional On the spot discipline was announced, in which it will be shown how much the team members can handle a new task by themselves, without the help of a coach. All teams were divided into so-called alliance groups and each group tried to get as many points as possible in this discipline. They had to assemble three robots together, program them to perform a previously unknown task, while all members of the alliance had to participate in its fulfillment and they also had to cooperate in solving the given task. Our team worked with a team from Northern California and in this discipline they got the best score among all alliance teams, earning them 1st place. In addition to this award, they won one of the ten championship awards, the Motivate Award.
We are glad that our company can support smart students on their way to become great programmers.
