Included with Registration
Grades K-4 (ages 6-10)
FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. focuses on building early interest in the STEM fields by challenging participants to explore a real-world problem and imagine possible solutions. A team of up to six students will use their new knowledge and creativity to build motorized models using LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 and create Show Me posters to present what they learned at a season-ending Expo.
Grades 4-8 (ages 9-14)
FIRST® LEGO® League team members will work together and apply their collective creativity and knowledge of STEM concepts to solve a real world problem. Teams design, build, and program LEGO® Education MINDSTORMS® robots to complete missions on a themed playing field. Teams compete against each other at exciting events where they make new friends, share their ideas and inventions, express team spirit, and celebrate their hard work!
Tyler joined the Science Center in 2014. He has been responsible for developing and leading summer camps, revamping field trip workshops, bringing in Lightwire Theater's DINO LIGHT, and writing the Center's live science shows. With his extensive background in engineering and social psychology, he will make sure each student has the skills and support they need to be successful in her/his endeavors. His top priority is showing everyone just how awesome science is every single day!
Cassandra has been with Da Vinci for more than two years using her background in computer science to create and deliver programs that teach kids how to code and work with technology. Her favorite part of being a FIRST coach is getting to know each child's personality and interests to help them find their place on the team as a programmer, researcher, or builder, and watching them gain independence and self-confidence in their work. She's looking forward to the new season!
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a not-for-profit organization that encourages kids to explore science and technology through collaboration with mentors and teammates, and motivates them to pursue education and career opportunities in STEM fields. FIRST® LEGO® League was created in partnership between FIRST and the LEGO® Group in 1998.
