  • Mansfield Jr. FLL Expo, Mansfield SDA School

    Imagination and science will come together on April 17 during the Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL®) Expo at Mansfield Seventh-Day Adventist School. Teams of 6 to 9 year-old children and their Coaches will demonstrate their research and construction skills, creative thinking, teamwork, sportsmanship, and sense of community. Now in its tenth year, Junior FIRST LEGO League is geared toward 6 to 9 year-olds, introducing them to the wonders of science, technology, and robotics through LEGO building. This international program was created in a partnership between FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and the LEGO Group to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the wonders of science and technology. This year’s “DISASTER BLASTERSM” Challenge calls for teams to explore one of today’s most relevant topics: natural disasters. Through their research project, teams discover how people prepare for, respond to, and recover from intense natural events. After conducting research, teams build a model with motorized parts using LEGO® elements and present their research journey on a Show Me poster. The April 17 expo at Mansfield SDA School is an opportunity for Jr. FLL teams from around Ohio to come together and share what they have created and discovered. The event is free to Jr. FLL teams who register with Mansfield SDA School.
