The LYR Jr. FLL Program is for 2nd and 3rd grade Leominster students and residents. They will be working in teams of four on the 2012-2013 challenge theme - Super Seniors.
LYR Jr. FLL Teams will take a "hands on" approach to the topic of how we can help senior citizens continue to be independent, engaged and connected. Teams will learn about simple machines as they build a model made of LEGO elements with a motorized moving part, and will create a team "Show-Me" Poster to represent their Super Seniors findings.
It is very important for parents to know, and to convey to their
children, that this is more than just a "play with LEGOs" camp before
signing them up. The actual building with LEGOs is only a small part
of the whole program. Involved is some research, some arts & crafts
creating the "Show-Me" poster and a whole LOT of teamwork!
The eight week program is scheduled to run on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00-5:30 from February 12th-April 2nd (not including February vacation week). For more information: email us with "Jr. FLL" in the subject line. There is a maximum of 40 students that the program can accommodate. Registration will be on a first-come, first serve basis by e-mail.
To register your child or a team of four, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Jr.FLL" in the subject line. We will e-mail you a registration form to mail to us with the $40 registration fee. Because space is limited, we will need the forms and payment mailed to us by Februrary 5th or we may have to give the spot to someone on the waiting list.
