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.

Teams address challenges with a specific theme, and this year it is “Animal Allies.” The competition involves designing and programming autonomous robots to complete a set of pre-defined missions in competition against other teams.

“This is a very high-energy event, and the participants have a great time,” said Richard Croft, tournament director and associate professor of computer science at EOU.

The robot challenge takes place in the Badgley Hall atrium. Spectators are welcome.
