This is the question on the minds of Lego League teams this fall. The 2014-2015 Lego League Challenge is World Class-Learning Unleashed. Students will redesign how knowledge and skills are gathered in the 21st century. Teams will teach adults about the ways that kids need and want to learn. Get ready for a whole new class, World Class.
Teams have been hard at work since the school year began to prepare for the Southern Tier Lego League Tournament on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at Houghton College. It's exciting to see the program continue to grow in our region and new schools have formed teams this season.
First Lego League, a world-wide robotics program, was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in Science and Technology. Each year a new program is designed to motivate kids to get excited about research, engineering, math and problem solving, while building self confidence, knowledge and life skills.
The Nielsen Phys. Ed building at Houghton College is the place to be this Saturday to see about a hundred 9-14 year old students, their coaches and families, and over 3 dozen volunteers discover innovative ways to explore robotics while having fun!
