The Salt Lake Tribune had a nice story over the weekend about the Utah First Lego League competition, part of a nationwide program that introduces kids between the ages of 9 and 14 to engineering by having them build robots using the popular building blocks.
The Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute at the David Eccles School of Business is the headquarters for Utah’s Lego League Competition.
“The kids have to think creatively, like a scientist, to build a robot that can complete various tasks,” said Thad Kelling of Lassonde in the Tribune article. “It’s open-ended. Very much like a real engineering experience.”
