First Lego League Team

*UPDATE* January 19: Our team, The Techno Bots, took second place at the SLCC First Lego League Tournament and is now advancing to the Championship Event at Weber State! Congrats Techno Bots! And a huge thanks to our own Mark Baer for helping us launch this program!

We are so excited to launch our FIRST LEGO league team this year, which would not be possible without the help of Ralph H. Baer Science and Technology Fund!

What is FIRST LEGO League? 

Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams (up to 10 members, grades 4 - 8) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field.

It 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 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 Core Values, which emphasize discovery, teamwork and good sportsmanship.  -

This is an excellent opportunity for children grades 4 - 8!
Our team will meet each Tuesday, from September 4 through November 20, 2018 at 6 PM, and consist of 10 participants and a coach.
