January 11th – April 18th (6 – 9 years old)
FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce basic (STEM) concepts to kids in grades K-4th grade, by engaging them with LEGO. Students will learn how to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. Teams will be made up of two or more adult coaches with up to six kids exploring a fun and real scientific problem. Teams will create a SHOW ME poster that reflects the teams research, ideas, and seasons journey and also what they learned by speaking to an expert on their challenge topic. Students will use motorization when constructing a creative LEGO model and they will share what they’ve learned and built at an Oregon Expo. No prior experience is required just a willingness to learn new things and have fun with other students who enjoy learning new things as well.
