Barack Obama – 44th President of the United States…

January 20, 2009 makes its mark in history, American History, World History, where the United States of America is on the verge of a big change. The fact that a multi-cultural country came together to elect a president that is multi-ethnic is history in itself. More importantly this President is calling on all Americans to work together with him to make America strong and rise to a greatness that has never been seen before.

So what role will FIRST® robotics play in this commitment for change and service to America? It will continue to do what it has been doing since
1989 when it was founded by Dean Kamen. FIRST® (For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology) a not-for-profit organization, with its many volunteers (who are teachers, community leaders, employees of corporations, university students/faculty, and FIRST® alumni), have been reaching out to young people using robotics to help build self-confidence, a strong knowledge base, cooperative working & sharing, as well as life-long skills in kids in America and in many countries throughout the world. It is through their involvement and spirit of “We Can” that they hope to affect change in the lives of young people who will hopefully make America and the world better.

In honor of this historic day Master Model Designers at LEGOLAND® in Carlsbad, California have built the Presidential Inauguration ceremonies out of LEGO® elements. Check it out…
