2015-2016 Competition - Trash Trek

We're not talking trash - we're cleaning it up! In the 2015 FIRST LEGO League TRASH TREK Challenge, more than 240,000 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!

Competitions consist of four parts

Table Performance LEGO built and programmed robot performs a variety of missions in 2.5 minutes
Challenge Project a 5 minute formal presentation + 5 minutes of q&a on this year's challenge topic
Core Values perform a simple team orientated task and then talk to the judges for 5-8 minutes
Technical describe your robot and what it does to the judges in a 10 minute interview
