This Lego track was used as development for the event that is sponsored by First Lego League

Deep in the basement of their home the geniuses practiced for the contest with fellow members of their team (team members shown in streamed video below)
A lot of work was done by the team members and parent sponsors to make this event happen. Good Job Everyone!
The following are 2 video interviews with 2 of the participants in the Indiana State Wide contest.
These competitors had to program the Lego brick to accomplish the goals that were given to them. They also had to assemble the Lego parts, motors, and sensors to carry out the mission.
The graphics on the table were supplied by the contest coordinators.
While in Vermont we had the opportunity to watch a live stream of the event. Many teams were present. What you will see is a video capture by one iPhone of the other iPhone that was viewing the live stream. Kind of kooky but it worked!
The chartreuse green tee shirts are the team members. While they were competing on the contest table there is another team on the other side so that more teams can compete quickly. The teams do not compete directly against another team. Each task that the team accomplishes is worth a certain numbetr of points. The task points are added for the final score.
Is it possible that the world in which we live is, and will be, developed by programmers?
Quite a generation of talent at such a young age!
