Lego league to the rescue from natural disasters

BATTLING it out to save the world with toy bricks might seem like a pipe-dream.

But nine Lego tech-loving teams are gearing up for the Eastern Cape's First Lego League (FLL) event next weekend.

The league offers a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination with Lego robotics.

And Panther, Frog, Rescue Squad, Real Steel, Turbolution, Killbot, Codex Cuneos, Flogen Hurgers and ADDA are the teams competing.

It will be held at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's (NMMU) indoor sports centre on Saturday.
