Calgary FIRST Lego League Championship

On January 2nd, over a dozen FIRST Lego League teams from across Southern Alberta joined us at Telus Spark for the Calgary FLL Championship.

Young robotics students competed in the TRASH TREK robotics challenges, presented their Trash & Recycling projects, and demonstrated excellent Core Values and Gracious Professionalism.

The event was action-packed with loads of excitement and we even had a visit from the local 501st Legion Star Wars Storm Trooper Garrison.

Congratulations to all our teams on their great work, we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming FIRST Robotics events. A Huge Thank You to all the Volunteers, Mentors, Coaches, Parents, and Students as well as to our Sponsor Telus Spark for helping to make this event a resounding success!
