CARE (Children As Rookie Engineers) Robotics (ages 6 - 7)

FIRST® LEGO® League Jr.: Creature Craze
This program features a real-world scientific concept to be explored through research, teamwork, construction, and imagination through a national model. Guided by coaches, teams use bricks to build a model that moves using the LEGO® Education WeDo Construction Set and 2.0 Set while creating a Show Me Poster to illustrate their journey. Unlike a workshop, teams are student-directed and coached through goals of the season. All students receive a t-shirt and are invited to participate in a local showcase on March 11th at UNCG.
