LA GRANDE, Ore. November 30, 2016 – Eastern Oregon University is hosting the 13th Intel Oregon FIRST LEGO League Local Qualifying Tournament Saturday, Dec. 3.
Opening Ceremonies are at 9 a.m. in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall and the competition begins at 9:30.
The event is the base rung of an international tournament for teams of children ages nine to 14, and students from around the region are participating.
