FIRST® LEGO® League Pilots Begin This Spring!
The District 95 Educational Foundation is excited to provide a grant to assist in funding the FIRST® LEGO® League Pilots in the Spring of 2017. The pilot at Middle School North will being in February. A second pilot will begin in March at Seth Paine. The goal of these pilots is to help prepare District 95 for a roll-out of FIRST® LEGO® League teams to all five elementary and two middle schools for the 2017-2018 school year.
The skills and content learned in a FIRST® LEGO® League experience align with both Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Students enrolled in this program will use science, technology, engineering, and math skills along with problem solving, and written and oral communication skills. The District 95 Educational Foundation is very excited to assist in providing this enriching, enhancing, and supplimenting learning opportunity for our D95 students.
