More than 120 kids ages six to nine took part in Cornell's 2014 Junior FIRST LEGO League Expo held Jan. 25 in Duffield Hall. 24 teams from the Ithaca, NY area presented "Disaster Blaster"-themed Lego models of their ideas to improve natural disaster preparation, safety and recovery.

The Cornell NanoScale Facility hosted the event in collaboration with Ithaca Sciencenter, the Red Cross of Central NY, and student volunteers from the Cornell Chapter of the Society of Women Engineers.
