If your kid loves LEGOS, science, math, technology, arts, or just having fun, then we have something for you. Once again, this popular museum in eastern Iowa is hosting a challenge for kids and it's going to be a blast.
FIRST LEGO League Challenge returns to the Putnam
FIRST LEGO League Challenge teams, which are made up of youth aged 9-14, from Iowa & Illinois are invited to a free season kickoff event that is going to be a blast.
For the 2023 -2024 FIRST season, the FIRST LEGO League Challenge theme is MASTERPIECE which will shine a spotlight on the role STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, and Mathematics) plays in the arts and empower young people to design and build a world of endless possibilities.
The Kickoff provides a fun, interactive way to meet other teams, FIRST Volunteers, and share key FIRST LEGO League Challenge information to support all teams to have a fun and rewarding season of learning. Teams will receive innovation project guidance and insight from the keynote speaker and from local STEAM and Arts organizations.
An inspiring keynote will be delivered by Sam McCullum, the brilliant mind behind STEAM On Wheels. Breakout learning sessions will be provided on the key aspects of the FIRST LEGO League Challenge by other experienced FIRST teams along with a session for coaches and mentors. The field for the robotics challenge will be set up and supported by the State of Iowa FLL Program Delivery Partner and the QC Head Referee.
In addition, local art professionals and organizations will have displays to share their creative expertise and provide insights for the attending teams.
The event is organized by the non-profit Quad City Engineering and Science Council. Further information is available at: https://qcesc.org/quad-cities-first-lego-league-teamkickoff/ with links for teams, event volunteers, and art organizations to register to attend and support.
