Kane County 4-H is thrilled that the sixth season 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 transportation. This year the theme is Supercharged. The teams worked hard to design and build a project that addresses an issue related to energy.

Dixie STEM Outreach hosted the final event at the Innovation Plaza on Dec 10th 2022. All eight 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. It is exciting to have these young kids innovating and learning to work as part of a team to solve real world issues,” says 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, parents and businesses that support this program. Special thanks to the Volunteer coaches:
