The Lego League - district Gmunden/Vöcklabruck is an initiative of the HTL Vöcklabruck in cooperation with the Techno-Z Braunau. The aim of the project is to spread fun in computer science and robotics already at secondary schools. As part of the project, pupils from HTL Vöcklabruck take on the role of coaches who, in a learning phase, teach middle school pupils the basics of programming and automation. The knowledge learned can be put to the test at the end of the school year in a competition - the Lego League.
The teams from the middle schools have to use their "Spike" Lego robot to solve tricky tasks in which the robots have to recognize colors, draw shapes and emit acoustic signals, for example. Miba sponsors the Ohlsdorf middle school and invites the participating classes to visit the Miba Academy as part of the project.
