First Lego League

First lego League!

Congrats to the LCTeam from Colegio Luis Amigó (Secondary Education School) in Pamplona, Spain, which recently won the First Lego League (FLL) regional competition (province of Burgos). Not only this, but they also won the Global Innovation Award at the same competition! This year’s First Lego League challenge was INTO ORBIT. The students’ project assignment for the INTO ORBIT season was to identify a physical or social problem faced by humans during long duration space exploration within our Sun’s solar system and propose a solution. Ander Otero (17, 1º Bachillerato), Daniel Zabalza (16, 1º Bachillerato), Iñigo Varela (16, 1º Bachillerato), and Asier Martínez (17, 2º Bachillerato) proposed the scientific project called SCEP (Space Crofts for Edible Printing) which was supervised by Professor Miguel A. G. Laso, from the Microwave Components Group at UPNA, one of TESLA’s partners. The project aimed to improve the quality of life of astronauts by proposing a sustainable mechanism for the 3D printing of edible daily-life objects. On behalf of all TESLA partners, best of luck to Ander, Daniel, Iñigo, and Asier for the Spanish and international finals.
