The Asdaa Association for the hearing impaired in Alexandria won the First Lego League (FLL) qualifying tournament.
The association's team, Horse Power, will compete in the international FLL between April 22 and 25 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, the Communications and Information Technology Ministry said in a statement Tuesday.
The FLL was organized and hosted by Egypt’s Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC), affiliated with the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA), according to the statement.
