At the State of Georgia FIRST LEGO League Tournament, 48 teams -- consisting of more than 300 students ages 9-14 -- will gather at the Georgia Tech Student Center to pit their LEGO robots against one another. Families, friends and the general public are welcome to attend this all-day event and cheer on their favorite team. 

In the 2012 SENIOR SOLUTIONSSM Challenge, teams explored the topic of aging and how it may affect a person’s ability to maintain his or her lifestyle -- solving issues such as getting around, keeping in touch or staying fit. Teams researched obstacles and then suggested ways to improve the quality of life for the seniors affected. Teams built, tested and programed an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® to solve a set of missions on an obstacle course.

The FIRST LEGO League Tournament is coordinated by Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Women in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing.
