DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is sponsoring a Lego state championship tournament starting this weekend at a university in southwestern Ohio.
The tournament Sunday and Monday at Wright State University will feature 36 teams of students from across Ohio. They're challenged to use Lego bricks, motors, gears and software to design and build robots to solve engineering problems.
Teams will participate Sunday in closed-door judging of their teamwork, robot design and research projects. Robot table competitions on Monday will be open to the public.
Students aged 9 through 14 will demonstrate skills in engineering and problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork and competitive play.
The event is put on by the Lego group and an organization called For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, or FIRST.
