Youths from throughout Northeast Oregon brought LEGOs to life Saturday at EOU.

They brought the toys to life in ways Denmark’s Ole Christiansen, who invented LEGOs in the late 1930s, never could have imagined.

LEGO robot vehicles programmed and operated by students ages 9 to 14 performed challenging maneuvers during which they had to protect small crash-dummy type models at the annual Intel Oregon FIRST LEGO League regional qualifying tournament.

The late Danish toy maker Ole Christiansen would have been stunned had he been at EOU Saturday. Christiansen, who invented LEGOs in the 1930s, would have watched youths do once-unimaginable things with his toy building bricks — make them come to life seemingly with artificial intelligence. The youths, ages 9 to 14, did so while competing at the annual regional FIRST LEGO League robotics tournament at EOU.
