First Lego League Jr. - It’s never too early to discover STEM!
Through exploratory research, hands-on construction, teamwork, imagination, and fun with LEGO elements, FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. challenges teams of up to six kids to explore a real-world scientific concept, then build a motorized model and develop a Show Me Poster to illustrate their journey of discovery. Throughout the season, adult coaches provide guidance and inspiration.

First Lego League - Imaginative thinking and teamwork build tomorrow’s innovators!
Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field.
It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Grades 4-8 Click HERE for more info
Our Lego Robotics club includes grades K-8, with a Jr non-competitive team (grades K-3) and a competitive team (grades 4-8), which competes with other teams from the surrounding areas as well as at a state, national, and even world level. The club involves programming, designing, and making robots to complete a series of "missions", as well as a team research project about some aspect the annual theme - this year OUTER SPACE! Team members are responsible for all of the work, with guidance from adult coaches.
This is a very intense yet supportive environment where learning and creativity are celebrated. There will be a $25 fee for students wanting to participate. The first meetings will be on September 11th and 18th at 3pm. Parents only need to attend one meeting.
