FIRST Lego League
Nearly 600 students, ages 9-14 years, contributed to the high spirited and fast-paced FIRST Lego League Championship, considered the “little league” of the FIRST Robotics Competition. Teams used Legos, sensors, motors and gears to design, construct and program their robots to challenge other teams’ robotic inventions. About 50 Hawaiian Electric volunteers were on hand to help traffic, guide, judge, set tables and generally assist with the smooth flow of the full-day event. In the end, it was the Iolani Ibots who captured the first prize overall championship award out of a field of 56 teams.
