The capital of Gipuzkoa, together with Deusto (Bilbao) and Mondragon, was one of the three venues that simultaneously hosted the FIRST LEGO League Euskadi international tournament for the first time. In the case of San Sebastian, 35 teams from the three provinces took part, presenting their proposals at the Eureka-Zientzia Museoa on the theme proposed this year: CITY SHAPER, building better environments in which to live and work, in which they had to identify a problem in a building or public space in the city and propose an innovative solution. 

The Department of Economic Promotion, through Fomento de San Sebastián , together with the Basque Innovation Agency-Innobasque, has been in charge of organising the FIRST LEGO League Euskadi tournament in Donostia, in line with the strategy it has been carrying out for years in the city's educational sphere, to promote innovation skills through the Donostia Innovation Campus initiative it develops with schools, vocational training centres and universities, with the aim of helping young people to improve their skills and possibilities for personal and professional development.

The FIRST LEGO League Euskadi initiative has been sponsored by Tecnun, Zuccheti, CAF, Inkor, Ausolan and the Eureka Zientzia museum.
