Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of food by finding ways to prevent food contamination?   In the 2011 Food Factor Challenge, over 200,000 9-16* year olds from over 55 countries will explore the topic of food safety and examine the possible points of contamination our food encounters – from exposure to insects and creatures, to unsterile processing and transportation, to unsanitary preparation and storage – then find ways to prevent or combat these contaminates.  In the Food Factor Challenge, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT to solve a set of Food Safety missions as well as research, develop, and share their innovative food safety solutions.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

The NDFLL Championship Tournament for the Food Factor Challenge Season is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2012 at the UND Memorial Union on the University of North Dakota Campus.  Opening Ceremonies are at 9 am with the Awards Ceremony commencing at 2 pm.  The tournament is free and open to the public.
