2013 Nature's fury challenge
Preparing, staying safe and rebuilding. CIEM researcher Tina Comes is one of the topic experts in First Lego League (FLL). FLL is a technology competition for kids world-wide.
The best way to summarize FIRST LEGO League is to say that it is a robotics program for children and younsters, which is designed to get children excited about science and technology - and teach them valuable employment and life skills.
Natural disasters as topic
In early fall, FLL releases a Challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic. This year NATURE'S FURY is the topic.
Researcher Tina Comes is one of 14 experts that the teams can contact to get input about preparing, staying safe, or rebuilding.
