Greetings from kidSTREAM Children’s Museum!
kidSTREAM is excited to host a FIRST LEGO® League Junior Expo and invite you to join us in this spectacular community event! This is a county-wide event.
What is FIRST LEGO® League Jr.?
It’s never too early to discover STEM. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math concepts. FIRST LEGO® League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®.
Guided by adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) 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. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the FIRST LEGO® League Jr. Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking.
At the close of the season, teams will come together at the Expo (scheduled for April 25, 2020) to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun!
