ONE OF MANY NOTEWORTHY GRANTS FOR YOU TO HELP FUND
Programming & LEGO® Competition
“The Hardest Fun You’ll
Funding Received: $300 Funding Amount Needed:
Beaver Ridge Elementary
What does it take to
program a robot made of Legos®? It takes a combination of imagination, science,
technology, engineering and math.
Forty students in 4th
and 5th grades at Beaver Ridge will do just that if this grant is funded. They will discover the
spirit of friendly competition as kids demonstrate their creativity, teamwork,
and understanding of technology competing with Lego® robots they designed.
They hope to enter four
teams of students into the LEGO® Mindstorm® First LEGO® League (FLL®) competitions.
The entry fee is $250 per team. “It is truly an amazing experience for our
students who are worlds behind affluent students who have many opportunities
for such real life experiences.”
