FLL 2011 Food Factor Challenge

FIRST LEGO League (FLL) 2011 Food Factor Challenge is confirmed!

Note that FLL 2011 is traditionally held in USA first before Malaysia, and not held simultaneously worldwide for some reason. The challenge and topic remain the same for other countries worldwide.

Here is the Food Factor Teaser from the website that describe the challenge:

Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of food by finding ways to prevent food contamination?   In the 2011 Food Factor Challenge, over 200,000 9-16 year olds from over 55 countries will explore the topic of food safety and examine the possible points of contamination our food encounters – from exposure to insects and creatures, to unsterile processing and transportation, to unsanitary preparation and storage – then find ways to prevent or combat these contaminates.  In the Food Factor Challenge, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT to solve a set of Food Safety missions as well as research, develop, and share their innovative food safety solutions.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

We will be coaching two school teams for this challenge: LEGO Logic from Sekolah Seri Cahaya and Light Warriors from Sekolah Seri Suria. We wish them best of luck!
