For decades, LEGOs have inspired creative impulses in people of all ages. They occupy children for hours at a time while providing imaginative outlets for the inner child in most adults. LEGOs themselves have matured to encompass much more than the simple, interlocking pieces in most children's toy chests, and it is the current generation of electronically operated LEGO robotics that has become a rapidly growing educational, recreational and competitive craze among students throughout Alaska. For the fourth year in a row, JEDC gives adults a shot at the fun.

LEGO League pulls in adults for challenge

For decades, LEGOs have inspired creative impulses in people of all ages. They occupy children for hours at a time while providing imaginative outlets for the inner child in most adults. LEGOs themselves have matured to encompass much more than the simple, interlocking pieces in most children's toy chests, and it is the current generation of electronically operated LEGO robotics that has become a rapidly growing educational, recreational and competitive craze among students throughout Alaska. For the fourth year in a row, JEDC gives adults a shot at the fun.

Corporate Challenge is an event of friendly competition that takes adults from the supportive sidelines of their kids' tournaments and offers them a similar challenge: form a team to design and build a LEGO MINDSTORM robot, and program it to accomplish a series of maneuvers.

Register soon to compete against these teams: State of Alaska DHSS, Legomaniacs, Integrity Real Estate Inspections & Alaska Robotics.

Corporate Challenge is at 6 p.m. on May 24 at the Baranof Hotel. Details: Fllalaska.com
