iSPACE: The STEM Learning Place will be home to the 2018 FIRST LEGO League District Tournament on Jan. 20.  Twenty-six teams in grades 4 – 9 will compete for spots at the Ohio FIRST LEGO League State Championship.

What is it?  Each year, FIRST LEGO League releases a challenge based on a scientific topic.  This year’s challenge is Hydro Dynamics — students learn all about water and how to find, transport, use and dispose of it.  Teams will program robots to score points on a themed playing field in Robot Game, and develop a solution to a problem they have identified in Project, all guided by FIRST LEGO League Core Values.

During the tournament, a Jr. FIRST LEGO League Expo will also take place.  Learn more at
