Norwich University will host the fourth annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Vermont State Championship on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018, in Shapiro Field House, an all-day event beginning at 9 a.m.

Founded by Segway inventor Dean Kamen, FIRST® LEGO® League is designed to inspire children in science and technology through the use of robotics. Open to 9 to 14-year-old students around the world, teams are tasked with researching a real-world scientific issue and designing and building an original robot.

This year’s theme is INTO ORBITSM. Teams will innovate in the vast expanse of space, exploring questions related to what it takes to travel to or live on another planet.

The Norwich event on Dec. 9 marks the fourth year of an independent FLL region in the state of Vermont. With 24 teams of up to 10 students each, along with coaches and parents, there will be much to see throughout the day, and spectators are encouraged to attend. Additionally, Junior FLL teams comprised of elementary school-aged students will be exhibiting their work related to the challenge at an unofficial showcase during the event.

Using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technologies, student teams showcase the results of weeks of intense preparation as they deploy their robots to complete thematic challenges in autonomous robot matches. Teams connect with their local and global communities by using critical thinking, creativity, and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts to create and present innovative solutions to real-world challenges.


Throughout the day spectators are welcome to visit the on-campus Sullivan Museum & History Center, the state’s only Smithsonian Affiliate. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-focused exhibits and demos from high school robotics teams (FRC and FTC) will be available at the event throughout the morning.

Opening and closing ceremonies, as well as robot matches, take place at Shapiro Field House.
