LEGO Robots are coming to NE Tennessee

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 9, 2020)

STREAMWORKS presents the 2nd Annual Model City FIRST LEGO League “Into Orbit” robotics competition qualifier and FIRSTLEGO League Jr. “Mission Moon” EXPO. On December 8th, 2018, K – 8-grade students will gather their crews for a space-themed STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) competitive event at John Sevier Middle School, 1200 Wateree St. Kingsport, TN 37660. Doors open to the public at 9 am and admission is free. There will be a Drone demo at noon. The awards ceremony is scheduled for 4:30 pm.

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the INTO ORBIT season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism. FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love – LEGO® . Join the 2018 season and discover your sense of wonder during the MISSION MOONSM Challenge. You and your team will transport to the moon where you make the rules, learn to thrive in a new environment, and explore all that is around you.

Based in Northeast, Tennessee, STREAMWORKS is an educational non-profit program that delivers enhanced opportunities for students (grades K–12) to participate in exciting mentor and project-based programs that focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills; inspire innovation; and foster well-rounded life capabilities.
