LEGO League is an interactive, hand-on and experiential Saturday morning enrichment program for 3rd and 4th grade students. Students work in interdistrict teams of 6-8 to build a variety of structures with simple motors using LEGO bricks, simple motors, gears, pulleys, wheels and axles and gears. The curriculum engages teams in the same problem-solving process practiced by professional mathematicians, architects, engineers and scientists: research, strategize, design, build and test.
