For the last few years I've been coaching a First Lego League team. In First Lego League, a team of 8 to 10 middle-schoolers build and program a robot using Lego Mindstorms and, with the robot, compete against other teams to achieve a set of goals.

This coming fall the competition kicks off with the theme of No Limits. The challenge is to build and program a robot that addresses the specific needs of people who face physical challenges in today's society. .

Given that Dean Kamen, the founder of the First Lego League, is also the inventor of the wheelchair that climbs stairs I'm guessing that we'll be getting acquainted with Lego stair climbing technologies. It will be fun.
