For over 10 years- NALUG and the LEGOFLL) have been teaming up and this year were back! FLL took place at the NAIT campus main building from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Teams from all over Alberta came to compete in the First Lego League and NALUG was invited as exhibitioners in the main Lobby. Our member Kris and Trevor came to represent NALUG and they wowed the audience with some of the robotic creations that they brought. NALUG was also there to talk about the upcoming event Northern Bricks. League (
Northern Bricks is sponsored by EEK! and will be the first LEGO fan convention to be held in western Canada. We were inviting the teams to come along and show off their robots during the event.

Overall, it another awesome show put on by NALUG and with the help of the FLL organizers we even got to talk about Northern Bricks at the closing ceremony and we hope that most of the teams will make it out and participate at the event in May. Throughout the weekend, it was great talking to all of the teams and seeing the amazing things that youth are capable of. It's definitely remarkable as well as inspiring to see what they built and the dreams they have for the future. We would to thank FLL again for all their help and for inviting NALUG back. See you again next year!
