The winners of the First Lego League Challenge 2022

The Italian finals of the First Lego League Italia Challenge, the student science and robotics team competition, took place over the weekend of 26-27 March at the Palazzetto dello Sport in Rovereto. Born in 1998 from a collaboration between Lego and the US association First (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), this challenge aims to stimulate scientific and technological projects to try to improve the world and its needs in constant change.

Teams with members from 9 to 16 years old - from the fourth grade to the second grade, even if not from the same school - can participate in the First Lego League Italia Challenge every year, facing each other in a sequence of qualifications that go from regional to national up to , in fact, to the global challenge between all the best projects selected in the various countries of the world, with the possibility of comparing themselves with the other teams and collecting any collaborations thanks to meetings with experts in the sector and various institutional offices involved.
