WKU Engineering’s 12th annual LEGO robotics competition Feb. 25

WKU Engineering faculty and staff, with support from the Tau Beta Pi student Engineering Honors Society, will conduct the 12th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition on Feb. 25 at Drakes Creek Middle School.

For the 2012 competition, elementary and middle school teams must build autonomous robots from LEGO Mindstorm kits to navigate a curving track modeled after the Beech Bend amusement park, and a straight drag race track as quickly and accurately as possible.

Teams will compete in either the “Engineer-in-Training” division for Elementary School teams, or the “Professional Engineers” division for Middle School and more experienced teams.

The competition will start at 9 a.m.; the public is welcome.
