Every year, FLL works with experts in the field to create a challenge that relates to a significant real-world issue. The end result is a two-part challenge that requires research to complete "The Project," as well as science and engineering to master the complex missions of "The Robot Game," which includes the "Missions and the Rules." This year`s robotics and research challenge, "Food Factor" will explore the topic of food safety and examine the possible points of contamination that human food encounters
The competition, which is free and open to the public, is held annually at the UND Memorial Union. The robot competition will begin with the opening ceremony at 9 a.m. and will continue through 1 p.m. Awards will be presented at 2:30 p.m.
