The North Avondale Montessori LEGO Team won the "Little Geniuses" award in the iSPACE Jr. First LEGO League (FLL) Official Exposition earlier this month. This year's theme was "think tank," and the students created a LEGO model to demonstrate the use of simple machines on a playground. Congratulations to the students and Coach Jacek Biesiada.
Team members include: Jan Biesiada, Natalie Lassiter, Cecilia Parker, Lena Parker, Maria Pratt and Will Pratt.
The mission of Jr. FLL is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills. Each year, Jr. FLL's national organizers announce a learning theme and invite teams to make a LEGO model with a motorized moving part and a poster presentation demonstrating their subject.
