LEGO Club

Purpose

LEGO 1

The St. Ursula School Junior FIRST LEGO League is focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children in 1st through 3rd grade.  This is a hands-on program designed to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it towards discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them.  This program features an annual real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking and imagination.  Guided by adult coaches, student teams work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review.

      • Design and build challenge solutions using LEGO elements
