EVENT CANCELED: Due to this week’s winter weather, the 15th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition has been canceled. For information, contact Kevin Schmaltz at kevin.schmaltz@wku.edu

SCHEDULE CHANGE: Due to area schools’ recent snow closures, the 15th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition has been moved from Feb. 28 to March 7.

WKU Engineering faculty and staff, with support from the Tau Beta Pi student Engineering Honors Society, will conduct the 15th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition on March 7 at Drakes Creek Middle School.

The 15th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition will be held Feb. 28 at Drakes Creek Middle School.

The 15th annual Kentucky Bluegrass LEGO Robotics Competition will be held March 7 at Drakes Creek Middle School.

For the 2015 competition, elementary and middle school teams must build autonomous robots from LEGO Mindstorm kits to accomplish two different Star Wars Themed tasks: (1) Cross hyperspace from a starting point to the finish as quickly as possible, staying on the safe path to avoid space debris and (2) Work with Rebels to battle the Empire around the Death Star to complete tasks and acquire points for your team.

Teams will compete in either the EIT, “Engineer-in-Training,” division for elementary school teams, or the PE, “Professional Engineers,” division for middle school and more experienced teams.

The competition will start around 9 a.m.; the public is welcome.
