Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-10, FIRST® LEGO® League – EXPLORE is a hands-on program designed to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them. Just like FIRST® LEGO® League – CHALLENGE, this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the Jr.FLL Core Values, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review. Team Members get to:
- Design and build solutions using LEGO elements
- Apply real-world math and science concept
- Research challenges facing today’s scientists
- Learn team-building and presentation skills
- Develop Show Me poster
Students participating in Jr. Lego League will be divided into teams of 5 or 6 and assigned a parent coach.
Meetings: TBD based on volunteer coaches
If you are interested in coaching an FLL-EXPLORE (Jr. Lego Robotics) team, contact Angie Schrader.
We will start registering teams when we have parent coaches in place.
