Thanks to Trumansburg Robotics, Inc., and Team 639: Code Red Robotics for bringing their robots and showing the next levels of FIRST, FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Robotics Competition.

We also want to thank the Sciencenter for bringing fun science activities for everyone to enjoy! We also want to thank the Cornell Society of Women Engineers (SWE) volunteers for helping run our event.

Below is a video from Cornell's 2014 Junior FIRST LEGO League Expo (courtesy of Cornell Chronicle) held January 25 in Duffield Hall. Twenty-four teams from the Ithaca NY area presented "Disaster Blaster"-themed Lego models of their ideas to improve natural disaster preparation, safety and recovery.

General Information about FIRST

FIRST is a nonprofit organization that has developed the FLL and Jr.FLL challenges for other organizations (like Cornell University) to run. The Cornell NanoScale Facility (CNF) at Cornell University operates independently from the FIRST organization, but runs the Expo following the framework developed by FIRST. More information about the FIRST organization and the competitions they organize at the elementary, middle, and high school levels can be found at the FIRST web site.
