The junior blast games are for children aged 6 to 9 and consist of a total of five robotic challenges/disciplines. Depending on their momentum, the participating teams have the opportunity to compete and distinguish themselves either in three (triathlon) or in all five (pentathlon) challenges.
A team that has chosen to participate only in the triathlon is not entitled to participate in the pentathlon. On the contrary, a team that has chosen to participate in the pentathlon has the right to compete in the smaller category. This ensures a fair ranking of the teams throughout the competition, according to their individual skills. For example, a team that finished fourth in the pentathlon could be the champion of the season in the triathlon and/or be able to win individual distinctions.
The platform used in the junior blast games is LEGO® WeDo 2.0.
