We are proud to announce that the school SaFa Úbeda, one of the pilot participants of the No One Left Behind project in Spain adopted Pocket Code in the First Lego League 2016 .
SaFa Úbeda has been one of the most active candidates of the First Lego League since 2014. In March, 2016, The Úbeda Team (Lego Tec SaFa Úbeda) ranked the second with the guidance of couch Andrés Romero Peralta in the local championship of Granada .
The FIRST LEGO® League Open European Championship is an international robotics tournament hosting more than 90 teams from more than 80 countries all over the world. It presents an international platform that inspires future leaders and innovators in science and technology through challenges, competitions and team work. Young candidates of 10-16 years old will be guided by adult coaches in FIRST LEGO team to research a real-world problem of their interests, such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to come up with a solution, the process of which requires them to design, build, program a robot with LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology. The competition would be on a table-top playing field.
Pocket Code and No One Left Behind support all the LEGO MINDSTORMS® NXT motors and sensors. Candidates could give their robots with face, voice, or even realise face detection, which means the robot can turn to and speak with someone in front of it. With Pocket Code, all these exciting features would be achieved in the easiest way, only by mounting the phone on robot and programming through visual blocks in mobiles or tablets. No PC or laptop needed!
