KLEMM Bohrtechnik supported once again the regional tournament of the First Lego League, which took place at the Konrad Adenauer school in Wenden. This year’s research topic “Animal Allies” referred to the relationship between humans and animals and future developments or improvements.

FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) is a program that supports children and youngsters in order to introduce them to science and technology in a sporty atmosphere. The basis of FLL is a robotics tournament in a cheerful atmosphere, where kids and youngsters need to solve a tricky "mission" with the help of a robot. The kids are researching a given topic within a team, they are planning programming and testing an autonomous robot to solve the mission. The FLL Teams take the opportunity to experience all steps of a real product development process: solving a problem under time pressure with insufficient resources and unknown competitors. FLL is a small micro cosmos of real business life in all its respects.

KLEMM managing director Dr. Carl Hagemeyer who took part as a member of the jury: “I am always impressed by the pupils’ great enthusiasm for science and technology. The coaches, i.e. the teachers, do an excellent job by supporting the children outside of the regular class schedule."
