The First Lego League of Guam announces the 2017 Pacific Championship on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at the Micronesia Mall Center Court. According to Dr. A.J. Sunga, First Lego League founder and GCC science professor, 18 robotic teams from public and private schools around Guam, as well as individual teams, will be competing in an “Animal Allies” competition. Sunga says that for the project, each team must identify a problem that happens when animals and humans interact; they then create an innovative solution that can make the interaction better for animals, people, or both; and will then share their solution with others. The opening ceremony starts at 11:30 am.

Sunga brought the First Lego League to Guam through his non-profit organization SIFA, or Science is Fun and Awesome. SIFA focuses on providing intelligent, innovative and tactile learning resources to communities that are underfunded, undereducated, and underrepresented.
