This year's recent FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta featured the Nano Quest real-life challenge, which tasked students, ages 9 to 14, to design, build, and program robots to explore the world of nanotechnology.
Nano Quest was part of the event's FIRST LEGO League (FLL) World Festival; it drew 94 teams from around the world. "Every FIRST LEGO League challenge helps students discover how imagination and creativity combined with science and technology can solve real-world problems, and this year's focus on nanotechnology introduces them to a new frontier of science and technology," said Dean Kamen, FIRST founder and inventor of the Segway transporter.
