LEGO Tech Talks – November 21st, 2019

Before entering into hardcore exam mode join us in ORBIT Lab for one of the last tech talks of this semester! A team of LEGO® tech experts has prepared an exciting program packed full of inspirational tech talks about how technology is applied in one of Denmark’s most innovative companies. And innovation is not only present in the design of LEGO® sets, but also in technology with a tech community of more than 500 techies working in the company.
