The Region 2000 Junior FIRST LEGO Expo is coming up April 30, 2011 in Lynchburg, Virginia and will be featuring 25 teams of 6-9 year old children who will present their projects on the theme “Body Forward” for judging and will participate in a number of hands-on science and technology activities. A little more about Jr.FIRST LEGO from their website:
“…The newest program in FIRST introduces the youngest students to the exciting worlds of science and technology. Just like FLL, this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination. Guided by adult coaches, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to create solutions and present them for review.
Younger elementary school students get to:
- Design and build challenge 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 posters”.
