Join our FIRST LEGO League Jr team of Mini Nerds and learn how LEGO bricks, robotics, science and technology can be fun!
Teams of 6 students, grades 1-4, will be coached and mentored by a local FIRST LEGO League team, Nerds On A Mission. Their mission is to spread S.T.E.M. learning in our community and to grow the full Jr. FLL and FLL program in our area!
During our AQUA ADVENTURE We will:
Explore – You and your community use water for many things every day. Where does your water come from? How does it get to you? Is the water cleaned or treated before you can use it? Why is it important to use water wisely? Pick one way that you use water at home or in your community. Learn as much as you can about the water’s journey. Then design a solution to improve a part of this journey.
Create and Test – Design, build, program, test, and improve a Team Model to show your chosen water use, the water’s journey, and your idea for how to improve a part of the journey. Include the AQUA ADVENTURE Inspire Model (A LEGO water pump) in your design. Also be sure to use LEGO Education WeDo2.0 or WeDo to build and program at least one motorized part of your Team Model.
Share – Make a Show Me poster, and use it and your Team Model to share what you have learned with others. Participate in an Expo, invite your family and friends to a special team meeting, or share your Engineering Notebook to show what you know about water!
