The challenge

LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Voice Challenge: Powered by Alexa

lego mindstorms kit

An opportunity for kids, schools and enthusiasts of LEGO® MINDSTORMS® around the world to explore and build the future of voice-based experiences through construction and robotics play.

Enter for your chance to win from over one hundred prizes worth up to $100,000, including one grand prize winner who will take home $20,000 in Amazon Gift Cards, LEGO® models, and a trip to LEGO® Headquarters in Denmark — where they will have an opportunity to tour the LEGO® House and meet LEGO® toy designers. In addition, the winner's creation will be featured for LEGO® fans to view at the annual LEGO®World event in Copenhagen.

Using the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit, you can connect LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 to Alexa, in order to unlock a new world of voice-powered experiences. Through this contest, you have the chance to activate your LEGO® collection, and think outside the box with a new input — your own voice. Create voice-powered experiences such as a series of figures that dance to music, a robot that defends its territory from invaders, or an immersive skill-based world where your creature responds to voice commands and sensor-based triggers. The possibilities are endless.

To compete, you will build a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 creation that connects to and works with compatible Amazon Echo devices through the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit. You will then submit what you have built for a chance to win.

But hurry, competition closes 19:59 hrs GMT on January the first 2020 at 07:59 GMT
