FIRST LEGO League Jr. focuses on building interest in children ages 6-9 in science and engineering through a hands-on program. Much like FIRST LEGO League, teams are presented with a real-world challenge to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination. Students work with moving parts and LEGO elements to build ideas and concepts. In FIRST LEGO League Jr. at SCH Academy, we target kids 1st-4th grade. We introduce them to the world of FIRST at a very young age so they become interested in robotics and have some experience making what they imagine come to life with LEGOs. 1218 students mentor our FLL Jr. teams to give them students they can look up to as well as teach 1218 students important communication and life skills.
