This year’s FLL challenge is all about cleaning up! A great way to make young innovators aware of this massive environmental reality and motivate them to think and create new ways to manage all the junk!
From the FLL site:
We’re not talking trash – we’re cleaning it up! In the 2015 FIRST® LEGO League TRASH TREKSM Challenge, more than 233,000 children ages 9 to 16* from over 80 countries will explore the fascinating world of trash. From collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse, there is more to your trash than meets the eye. Join FIRST LEGO League teams on a Trash Trek to discover the hidden (or not so hidden) world of trash! – See more at: http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge/2015trashtrek#sthash.nF7xSwSf.dpuf
