LEGO, Music, STEM and Summer of Sound

The Institution of Engineering and Technology’s (IET) FIRST® LEGO® League INTO ORBITSM is being sponsored by RS Components during 2018/19. The league is a global STEM competition attracting 35,000 teams in 90 countries to solve real-world problems with the help of robots.

RS is sponsoring activities in the UK and Ireland in which youngsters aged from 6 to 16 years work together to explore a given topic and design, then build and program an autonomous LEGO robot to solve a series of missions. The League will be covered here in greater detail in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for our new FIRST LEGO League launch.
