FIRST LEGO League Jr. (FLLJr) Robotics Program
Ages: 6 – 9
Duration: 16 hours (8 weeks x 2 hrs/week)
A hands-on program designed to introduce science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts to young children. In teams, children explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. and construct a motorized model using LEGO elements. In the process, students learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and core values including respect, sharing, and critical thinking. Acceptance will be on a first-come first-serve basis; however, given the underrepresentation of women in STEM fields, priority will be given to female students if required to achieve equal participation of both genders.
