(January 11, 2023) Glenside and Myers sent teams of 10 to compete against 18 teams at the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Lego League at La Salle College High School this past weekend.
The First Lego League Challenge consists of students from grades 4-8, at a minimum age of 9-years-old. CSD students were the youngest competitors. There were four events: Innovation Project, Robot Design, Core Values and Robot Game. Students who competed engaged in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering - building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game.
FIRST® LEGO® League introduces science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to children ages 4-16 through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem solving experience through a guided, global robotics program, helping today's students and teachers build a better future together. Three divisions, Discover, Explore and Challenge, inspire youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding, and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.
