Swan Christian College is starting a First Lego League Club. It will run on Thursday afternoons at the College and will enable groups of students to compete in a competition using Lego, coding and robotics.
The First Lego League is a competition catering for upper-primary and lower-secondary school students. It is widespread in many schools around the world, there are 32,600 teams made up of 350,000+ students from nearly 80 countries.
The competition is designed to encourage and develop imaginative thinking and teamwork. Students are guided by teachers to research real-world problems and are challenged to develop creative solutions for the problems they have identified.
Students, staff and parents will all be involved in the initiative. Students will be coached and mentored to work collaboratively and ensure they are on track with their project. They will be educated in robotics, programming, teamwork, science, math and technology throughout the project. Parents will be invited to support their children.
