FIRST LEGO League: Cooking at the Tournament

FIRST LEGO League Food Factor

This year, the FIRST LEGO League‘s Food Factor Challenge is organizing teams of kids to program robots while solving problems in food safety.

Super Chef attended the Virginia/DC FLL Tournament in Harrisonburg, VA, last weekend. Rookie team Super Nanobot Extremes 2 partook in the competition, along with 96 regional championship teams from across the Mid-Atlantic. They descended on James Madison University for the two-day competition organized by Prof. Dominic Swayne and his students.

The FLL kids undertook a wide variety of fun activities on Saturday, including making Ice Cream, Gingerbread Challenge and Cooking with Chef Reg Foucar-Szocki and a team of culinary college students. The kids got to make quesadillas, meatballs, lemonade, and dessert for their families.

Here is Super Nanobot Extremes 2 in action, performing their skit about their “Therm-Alarm”: congratulations to all the teams!
