Counted through: the year in numbers
by Stefanie Sieber
As the year draws to a close, we've taken a look at what's been going on! 32 members of the association and 10 employees in the office celebrated the anniversary year "Passion for STEM" for the 20th anniversary of the association and successfully implemented our two educational programs FIRST LEGO League and RoboCup Junior. In the process, 2220 cups of coffee were consumed and 120 pizzas were ordered. 63 regional partners, together with 1500 volunteers, accompanied around 13,000 students through the educational programs. In total, at least 2.5 million LEGO bricks were used, 8 hours of raw footage for films were shot and 10.000 emails were sent!
We have a lot of plans for the new year: to inspire even more teams and classes for FIRST LEGO League and RoboCup Junior, to set up a volunteer platform, to develop new ideas and projects and to organize a great FIRST LEGO League final in Dresden together with our partner, LJBW e.V., etc. - stay tuned!
