Welcome to Rocky Mountain’s
Junior FIRST LEGO League!


 

Challenge 2008

 

 

 

Rocky Mountain’s Junior FIRST Lego League offers students up to age 9 the chance to solve math and science current issues using Legos. Teams of six children work for about four weeks to create a science-fair type display board illustrating what they learned and to build a logo model to depict their thoughts.

The “2008 Rocky Mountain Junior Lego League Expo” will be held April 25th 2009. It will be very informal and everyone will get an award. It really is a non-competition. It is $25.00 to enter one team. Teams can buy the Lego kit designed for the problem for $95.00 or they can use their own Legos, OR they can buy the kit AND add their own Legos.

The 2008 Rocky Mountain Junior Lego League Expo will be held at Leawood Elementary school in Littleton on Saturday April 25th 2009 from 10AM-12PM. Teams will have a spot for their Lego model and their display board in a science fair setting so everyone can share their work. There will also be a real Lego robot built by a high school team so the kiddos can see what the “big” kids build to solve the same “Climate Connection” FIRST Lego League problem.

Each annual Challenge has two parts, the Poster and the Model.  Working at their own pace in teams of up to 6 and guided by at least one adult coach, kids:

  • Investigate the theme, according to the specific Challenge instructions
  • Document how they researched and what they learned on a creative poster
  • Build a model out of LEGO elements, incorporating a moving piece
