FIRST LEGO League “Body Forward” Challenge State Championship Arizona State University in Tempe on Dec. 11 will host the state championship tournament of the Arizona FIRST LEGO League, a global robotics program for ages 9-14 and part of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering’s K-12 outreach programs.

Forty schools from throughout the state will send student teams to ASU to showcase robotics projects that fit this year’s theme: demonstrating how engineering and biological and medical sciences are combining efforts to solve health care problems.

Students program LEGO Mindstorms robots to explore medical questions involving bone repair, rapid blood screening, development of bionic eyes, nerve mapping, object control through thought, overcoming genetic predispositions to diseases and maximizing the body’s potential to heal itself.

Students’ teachers and families gather as teams vie for the chance to participate in the FIRST LEGO League World Festival, to be held in conjunction with the FIRST Championship, April 27-30, 2011, in St. Louis.

Regional contests will be held Dec. 4. For more information, visit www.usfirst.org.
