The University of Bath is delighted to be hosting this vibrant and prestigious international robotics competition to celebrate young talent and inspire the next generation of leaders in science, engineering, technology and maths.

See below for details about tickets for the Robot Game Shows.

Hosted in the UK for the first time!

The FIRST® LEGO® League International Open Championship 2017 is organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in partnership with the city of Bath and the University of Bath.

Over 90 teams from 35 countries across the world will be taking part, bringing together 700 children (11-16 year olds) and 500 teachers and mentors. The competitors will showcase their skills in construction, programming, real world problem-solving and presentation of ideas and solutions, while also sharing their culture, core values, making friends and having fun!

The challenge:

1. Programme and build an autonomous robot to undertake a series of tasks and score points on a themed playing field using LEGO® MINDSTORMS®.

2. Develop a solution to a problem that the team has identified. This year’s project theme is ‘Animal Allies’. Each team will create a way of improving the interaction between humans and their chosen animal, developing their idea through research and collaboration with experts.

3. Adhere to FIRST LEGO League’s signature set of core values, by celebrating discovery, teamwork and gracious professionalism.
