FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Ivy Tech Community College hosted the first Lego League Qualifying Tournament this weekend.

The robotics competition consists of robots made of legos. The school teams are judged on robot performance, design and presentation.

This year's theme is all about space. "They take something that's fun and comfortable and known to the kids and they insert things like programming, space, and the technology of it. It's really a great marriage of the two and it helps get the kids interested in STEM."

The top three overall teams will advance to the Indiana first Lego League Championship on December 8th at Purdue-Fort Wayne.
