Today three other students and I visited Mr. Lander's fourth grade class at Tompkins Elementary School to teach them about closed circuits. We did a hands-on activity to create a closed circuit using an LED light, a battery, and copper tape. Since its Valentines Day, we decided to have them make light-up, paper flowers. These fourth graders were very bright students and were very excited during the activity. We love going to the elementary schools and doing activities with the students. We hope to partner up with Mr. Lander and more classes to bring even more cool hands-on activities to them!

We had such a great time at LEGOLand! Six of our FLL Jr teams went to and displayed their models at LEGOLand today. Team members were interviewed by judges and shared with them what they had learned during our nine week season in the fall semester. Team members who mentored any of our Junior Robotics teams, including FLL, FLL Jr, and FTC, went to LEGOLand with us.
