Think STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is just lab reports, spreadsheets and math equations? Think again.
STEM helps students explore subjects that can lead to exciting careers. TRES PTA now offers the Maryland Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL®) program for students in first through third grades, and the FIRST® LEGO® League program for students in fourth and fifth grade to enhance STEM initiatives.
Both programs immerse TRES participants in real-world science and technology challenges. In Jr.FLL®, teams research a topic and build a LEGO® model with at least one moving part to demonstrate what they learn, as well as a poster board to illustrate their team and their research process. In FLL®, teams research and design their own solution to a current scientific question or problem and build autonomous LEGO® robots that perform a series of missions. The program helps children develop valuable life skills while learning they can make a positive contribution to society.
