We’re counting down the days to this year’s Global Innovation Award celebration! 20 semi-finalist teams from 4 countries will be making their way to San Jose, California, USA, to kick off the festivities later this month.

The FIRST® LEGO® League Global Innovation Award is a competition designed to showcase the real-world, innovative solutions that teams create as a result of their Project. This year’s celebration will feature innovations from the HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season, which challenged students to solve a real-world problem related to the human water cycle.

Tune in to our LIVE event webcast on June 21st at 4:00 pm PST. The action will be hosted by DeeJay Knight on the FIRST Twitch Channel.

In honor of the event, we’ll be celebrating innovation all month long – check out our Twitter handle to get inspired, and join in the virtual conversation to let us know why you invent, innovate, problem solve, tinker, etc. using #Iinventbecause.
