LEGO League


Swan Christian College's First LEGO League

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. They are coached and mentored to work collaboratively and ensure they are on track with their project.

As part of the First LEGO League extracurricular program, students in Years 6-10 learn about robotics, programming, teamwork, science, math and technology.

Swan's LEGO League meets weekly, currently on Thursday afternoons. If you would like to find out more information please speak with Mr Andrew Twine or Mr Mathew Woodbine or visit the First Lego League website here.
