First LEGO League Jr. Team (2nd -3rd)


FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 9 while exciting them through a brand they know and love-LEGO. Guided by a coach and a parent volunteer, teams (up to 6 members each), explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc.  Then they create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team.  They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements.  This grant would like to increase the number of teams to 4(6 students per team.) This past school year 2 teams of 6 students participated in this program with great success.
