DCC Hosting Hudson Valley LEGO League Championship

On Saturday, February 27, Dutchess Community College will host the 2016 Hudson Valley FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League Tournament championship matches, the culmination of eight regional qualifying tournaments, involving over 1,000 children, which took place this winter. The regional championship features teams of two to 10 children charged with using LEGO components to build small robots that complete specific learning-themed missions. The competing teams have been working on their robots since fall 2015 and the championship is the culmination of many months of work. Teams hail from lower Westchester County through points north of Albany. The event will be held in Falcon Hall Gymnasium from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Snow date: February 28) For more information, visit http://www.sunydutchess.edu/legoleague/
