May 3, 2007
U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging all Wyoming youth between the ages of nine and 14 who enjoy building, taking apart and exploring machines to enter the FIRST LEGO League robotics tournament to be held Dec. 1 in Casper.
As ranking member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and member of the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, Enzi has spent a large part of his congressional service supporting vocation and education enrichment opportunities like the Wyoming FIRST LEGO contest. The senator also sponsors his own annual inventors conference and has met with FIRST founder Dean Kamen to discuss ways to get students interested in math and science.
"The FIRST LEGO League tournament is a great opportunity for kids to work together and apply their creativity and imagination. An experience like this could be an early stepping stone in the making of future Wyoming scientists, engineers and inventors,” said Enzi. "Promoting ingenuity and knowledge is vital to filling the high skill, high-paying jobs of the 21st century."
The Wyoming FIRST LEGO League Tournament 2007 will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2007, at the Casper Events Center.
