First Lego League Middle School Afterschool Program
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork which is the theme for our FLL middle school afterschool program.
This program will be guided by V Smith and Mary Molliconi as Coaches.
The FIRSTLEGO League afterschool program students will research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. Throughout the year the students will design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field at the state competition. This 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 discovery 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 signature Core Values.
