First Lego League Andorra Telecom
At Andorra Telecom we have set ourselves the challenge of stirring the interest of our young people, especially among girls, in the exciting adventure of discovery and curiosity, with the aim of fostering vocations for science and technology. We want to accompany them along this path, providing impetus and inspiration.
Our lines of social responsibility include support for educational projects related to technology training and innovation. Among such projects, robotics in education occupies a prominent place.
Since 2014 we have been holding the Andorran competition of the Andorra Telecom First Lego League, a global challenge aimed at schoolchildren whose focus is on innovation, science and group work.
Each season, the First Lego League offers a new challenge to participating teams related to a current social or environmental issue.
The proposed solution must be developed in two areas: science and robotics. The science project must identify a real problem, research it, and propose an innovative solution, while the development of a robot involves participating in the resolution of pre-established missions using engineering concepts.
The First Lego League goes far beyond the competition itself. Thus, during the previous months, the teams - guided by a coach - build, program, learn to find and analyse information, and present their research findings. They do so by following the values promoted by this competition, such as companionship, respect, celebration and teamwork.
