The Montana FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge competitions are hosted by MSU's College of Engineering.
FIRST LEGO League teams, composed of students grades 4-8, have spent weeks building and programming animal-themed robots made from Lego kits, and will compete by performing "missions" on pool table-sized playing fields. FIRST Tech Challenge contestants, from grades 7-12, compete with more complex robots in a larger arena.
