Ford Helps Budding Engineers Learn New Skills With LEGO
The Ford-backed FIRST LEGO League holds its final in Birmingham tomorrow for the secondary schools taking part following regional heats at Ford locations in Dunton, Southampton and Halewood.
The league is the result of an alliance between education group FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the global LEGO toy brand. Ford's UK product development centre in Dunton, Essex, and BP, Ford's partner on fuels, lubricants and future technologies, both sponsor FIRST LEGO League.
