The Lincoln and Omaha LEGO User Group (LOLUG) is a small community of adult LEGO enthusiasts who enjoy interacting locally with other fans in Nebraska. For membership information, see our About Us page.
Information about the Expo
The Expo represents a collaborative effort between
the SPIRIT Project and the GEAR-Tech-21 4-H Youth
Development project, and FIRST® LEGO® League to
create an outstanding robotics competition for about
1,000 of our local and greater Nebraska area youth.
As you cheer on our future scientists and engineers,
we encourage you to visit the CEENBoTTM Showcase,
FIRST LEGO League events, sponsor booths, and
