Briquconvention LEGO challenge INSA

The not-to-be-missed event for LEGO fans!

The students of the Mechanical Engineering department would like to welcome Lego fans and the general public to the INSA Lyon campus.

The LEGO® Robot Challenge

The aim of this competition is to stimulate students’ creativity and ingenuity in a fun way. Teams of students will go head to head to make a robot in 24 hours using a programmable Lego Mindstorm NXT kit. Their robot must fulfil an objective determined at the start of the competition. The challenge will be open to all INSA students, free of charge. At last year’s event, 12 teams of 4 students took up the challenge.

The competition will start on Friday, April 7 and the final will be at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. Open to the public. The robots created will be exhibited to the public until Sunday, April 9.

Further information and registration details are available on the Facebook page of the event
