Epunkt e. has astonished everyone by winning first place in the overall assessment during the third round of the first LEGO League 2011/2012. This means they have qualified for the World Festival in St Louis (USA), held from 25–28 April 2012 and also the Open European Championship in Mannheim from 6–9 June 2012.
This was a new experience for the boys and girls who presented their research and participated in a discussion about robot design in English. There were 24 teams from 8 countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland) at the Central Europe finals.
The S & N team had the second best research presentation. They repeated the presentation on a grand scale in the Audimax of Technical University of Cottbus. The sense of togetherness and the enormous fun had by all were the basis for their winning 1st place in the team work category.
Although with only 7th place in the Robot Game, Epunkt e. fell short of the goals it set itself, it managed to make a comeback in the overall rankings against the SAP team Robonova XL.
In the USA Epunkt e. will be among the final 80 out of more than 17,000 teams from all over the world. The numbers indicate how important the first LEGO League has become.
All the team members are already looking forward to the World Cup and S & N wishes the team success.
