First FLL in Egypt Competition Finale
09 February 2006

The FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a result of an impressive alliance between FIRST and the LEGO Companies. The FLL is an international hands-on, sport-like, robotics program for children 9 to 14 years of age. Guided by mentors and their own imagination, FLL students solve real engineering challenges, develop important life skills, and learn to make positive contributions to society, enhancing characteristics such as team-building, problem solving, analytical thinking and creativity.

Every September, a new challenge is unveiled and over the course of 8 weeks, the FLL international teams strategize, design, build, program, test and refine a fully autonomous robot capable of completing the mission. During the process, the teams also search the web, talk to scientists, visit the Library and develop compelling presentations that relate to a problem or opportunity facing the world of today.

On 9 February 2006, the first FLL in Egypt Competition was organized by the PSC in cooperation with the IEEE GOLD Egypt. The aim of the "Ocean Odyssey Challenge" was that the participants apply science and technology to better understand the world's oceans; the importance of which was tragically enhanced by the tremendous losses associated with the recent Tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

Four school teams, each including five students and one supervisor, participated in the Challenge. They trained for two months in the RoboAlex lab in the ALEXploratorium and on the day of the event presented the results. All participants received medals and a special LEGO trophy was awarded to the leading teams.
