40 teams of school children around Aarhus are working very hard right now to be ready for the great day; Saturday 12 November. The First LEGO League theme this year is "Animal Allies". The challenge is to build a LEGO robot that can taverse a preset table of tasks gaining points, produce an interesting and scientifically based presentation covering the theme of the year as posters, ppt-presentations, singing and dancing or whatever and generally have fun and learn.

Your task will be to help giving points to the teams for quality of presentations, programming, construction, team spirit ect. accoding to your abilities and interests. This is not challenging, and we will prime you thoroughly for the task at the intro-meeting.

Non-Danish speakers, emeriti, professors, PhDs, 1st year students - all are welcome

Your efforts are unpaid, but snacks, breakfast and lunch are available during the day

The winners in Aarhus will enter the Scandinavian competition with the winners from 49 other sites, and the Scandinavian winners participate in the world finales.
