Googlers are not only well paid (according to the media), they also word on several interesting projects of their own, or in community.
An initiative that has been supported by Google is the Lego competition. This is something done for the secondary school students, where they can create robots using Lego pieces.
We believe that getting kids interested in science, computers, and technology early on is very important, so we were honored last weekend to receive the "FIRST LEGO® League Outreach" award at the Northern California FLL championship tournament. FFL is a program encouraging fourth- to eighth-grade kids to study science and technology. Each fall, student teams (who compete at the local, national and international level) build autonomous LEGO® robots to tackle a set of challenge missions -- and finish as many as they can in 2-½ minutes! This year's challenge: called Nano Quest.
