FIRST LEGO League Singapore 2015-2016

Singapore – 8th March 2016, Tuesday – Last Saturday, over 1000 youths aged 9 to 16 years took part in the finals of the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Tournament in Singapore. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is a joint initiative by US-based FIRST (Foundation for Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) and LEGO to inspire young people to get excited about careers in science and technology, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

The FIRST LEGO League targets students from 9-16 years old. FLL consists of two parts. The first part consists of a research project and a presentation based on the theme for the season. The theme for this season is “Trash Trek” which challenges participants to think about the challenges we are currently facing in waste management and come up with innovative solutions to tackle these challenges. The second part consists of a robot game which requires students to build a robot using LEGO parts to complete missions on a challenge mat which is also based on the theme for the year.

Teams presented their projects to expert judges on the 4th of March 2016 and competed in the robot game on 5th March 2016. Ms Rahayu Mahzam, Member of Parliament for Jurong GRC, officiated the prize giving ceremony on 5th March 2016 at Canadian International School (Lakeside campus).

Since 2014, the number of teams taking part in this competition every year has been doubling, showing the keen interest in STEM that current students possess.

Duck Learning is proud to be the principal sponsor and organiser of the FIRST LEGO League in Singapore. The event is co-organised by Canadian International School and IDA Labs. FLL is also part of the National Infocomm Competition by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) and is supported by IDA.

“I am really impressed by the creativity, problem-solving skills and teamwork shown by the students in the FIRST LEGO League Singapore Tournament. It bodes well for Singapore’s future that we have so many students interest in innovation and creating in STEM. We are proud to be the local organisers of the FIRST LEGO League in Singapore and look forward to supporting STEM Education efforts in Singapore for years to come,” said Mr Hozefa Aziz, CEO of Duck Learning, partner of LEGO Education in Singapore.
