Do you want to learn more about FIRST LEGO League Jr.? Nebraska 4-H will be hosting a FIRST LEGO League Jr. Showcase on March 4, 2017, at the UNL East Campus Union where you and other parents or 4-H volunteers can learn and see more about what youth are engaging in!
An informational flyer can be found at

What is FLL Jr.? Guided by two or more adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, animals, etc. Then they create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking. At the close of each season, teams come together on a regional basis to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun! (
