2011 Food Factor Challenge

 Keeping Food Safe

FIRST® LEGO® League teams will improve the quality of food by finding ways to prevent food contamination. 

In the 2011 Food Factor Challenge, over 200,000 9-14 years old from over 55 countries will explore the topic of food safety and examine the possible points of contamination our food encounters – from exposure to insects and creatures, to un-sterile processing and transportation, to unsanitary preparation and storage – then find ways to prevent or combat these contaminates. 

In the Food Factor Challenge, teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT to solve a set of Food Safety missions as well as research, develop, and share their innovative food safety solutions.  Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
