Our team, the Brick Eagles, is a registered FIRST Lego League team. FIRST is an acronym: For Inspiration & Recognition of Science and Technology. Their mission statement is as follows:
The mission of FIRST® is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
We adhere to a set of core values:
Each year the team faces a new challenge. This year's challenge is called Into Orbit!
Students must identify a human physical or social problem associated with long duration space travel and develop a solution to that problem that is new and innovative or improves on an existing solution.
