FIRST LEGO League 2011

I took part as a judge in the FIRST LEGO League Malaysia Open Championship recently. Once more, it was an exciting competition and I am totally impressed with how the students came up with creative ideas to solve the various problems they face. The atmosphere and excitement this year was palpable and I am totally in love with the competition.

I plan to bring AESTE into the competition next year. If I have some money to spend, I will provide some monetary sponsorship. This would most likely be in the form of sponsoring a school to compete or to help partly sponsor the winning teams to represent Malaysia overseas. If I do not have money to spend I can participate in terms of time and effort. I will get all my staff to take part in mentoring teams. It should be fun.

To give you an idea of how much work these students get their robots to do, take a look at the video below.
