Event description

Description

We teach kids to play sports like T-ball when they are in kindergarten. Why not teach them to think and explore STEM from a young age? Make it fun and guide them, and you'll be amazed at what you'll see.

It’s never too early to discover STEM. FIRST LEGO League Jr.* is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Then they create a Show Me Poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking, as well as the FIRST principles, Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition®. At the close of each season, teams come together on a regional basis to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun!

Interested in learning more? Interested in starting or joining a FIRST LEGO League Jr. team? Join us for an information session on how to start a FIRST LEGO League Jr. (FLL Jr.) team and what it takes to run a team. Learn from teams and coaches that have been a part of FIRST for over 5 years. We will review what it takes to set up a team, a 12-week plan for putting a team together and how Wizards.exe can help mentor and guide coaches. At the end of the season, teams will have the opportunity to share their projects and creations with others at a Maryland FLL Jr. tournament.
