Junior Robotics teams a tremendous success
by Elizabeth Davis
The third year of having Junior First Lego League Robotics teams in Kane County has been a tremendous success. The enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteer coaches and kids has been phenomenal.
Lego League Robotics provides the participants an opportunity to use Legos, robotics, teamwork and coding to address real world issues. Last year the kids learned about space. This year the theme is GAME CHANGERS. The teams worked hard to design and build a project that would promote physical activity for everyone.
Kane County 4-H partnered with the Kane Education Foundation to host the final event for the Kane County Junior teams. On January 26, all six junior teams were able to present their projects to a panel of judges and share about their experience.
“We are so proud of our teams and what they have accomplished this year despite all the setbacks due to COVID,” said 4-H Coordinator Angie Reidhead.
These opportunities are available to the youth in our community because of funding
provided through the Utah STEM Action Center and the incredible volunteers that support this program.
