Never Too Old for LEGO!
On Wednesday, Oct 2, 2013 Jennifer Christensen met with the Gamma Student Chapter, Mathematics Education Club. She introduced students and faculty to U.S. FIRST: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (http://www.usfirst.org/); a national LEGO robotics challenge league that emphasizes STEM learning across K-12. There are four local teams at the middle grades level that meet 1-2 times per week to prepare for local, state, national, and international competitions. Students and faculty enjoyed playing with sample robots, and a few students expressed interest in becoming mentors for local FIRST LEGO League robotics teams in Pitt County.
