We had 53 students, kindergarten through fifth graders, who started our brand new First LEGO Club of Bonney Lake Elementary last spring.
Our students are excited LEGO engineers working across grade levels to invent LEGO robotic creations that grow our minds and our understandings of engineering processes!
These students take on projects that experiment with global issues and problem solve to start making our world a better place.
Our club is special because it is offered to all kids regardless of socioeconomic status. We want to make sure that all students including student have access to the club without charging student fees. We are a growing club this fall and we are lacking enough WeDo 2.0's and Lego Mindstorms kits to have one for every group of six students.
We are the first kind of club in our school district and we will be a feeder program for Mountainview Middle school and eventually Bonney Lake High School Robotics program.
We are working together with over a dozen parent volunteers and this year will be the first time we compete in a FIRST Lego League Expo competition!
These materials will be put to good use for all students involved with LEGO Club currently and for years to come, as LEGO's never go out of style. Being able to reuse materials helps with the sustainability of our club.
The materials will be used at weekly meetings with our teams, and at the annual LEGO League Competition that we hope to participate in this school year.
The materials will help get our club started and work to sustain it as the years pass.
The STEM focus of LEGO Club is preparing participants for a future where science, technology, engineering, and math are essential to career paths and students future opportunities.
