The Green Mountain Gears were nominated for the Global Innovation Award, where they will move forward and compete against teams from all over the world for $30,000 in funding from the XPrize foundation to help make their innovative solution—related to the theme of trash—a reality.

Norwich will again host a FIRST® LEGO® League “sports for the mind” robotics competition for 9- to 14-year-olds. The Vermont State Championship event will be held on Sunday, November 15, 2015.

Teams will showcase the results of weeks of intense preparation as they demonstrate their teamwork skills, provide design briefings on their custom LEGO® robots, and share their innovative solutions to real-world challenges connected to local and global communities. Prior to the event, registered teams design, build and program robots. At the event, they deploy their robots to complete thematic challenges during timed matches.

The tournament takes place at Norwich University’s Shapiro Field House in Northfield, Vermont. The event is free and open to the public. Spectators are most welcome.

  • Pre-registered team arrival | 8:00 am
