FIRST LEGO League Jr. Expo
The SC 4-H Engineering Challenge is proud to host the 2018 FIRST LEGO League Jr. Expo! YouthLink has sponsored teams across the state to participate in this expo*.
In the 2017-2018 Aqua Adventure Challenge, FIRST LEGO League Jr. Teams researched where the water you use in your daily life comes from and what happens on its way to you. Students learned about simple machines as they built a model made of LEGO® elements with motorized parts, and created a team Show Me Poster to represent their findings. Join us on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 as each team will be displaying and presenting their research projects during our STEAM Fair!
- 10:00-10:30 – LEGO Model and Show Me Poster Presentations
- 12:00-12:30 – Awards during Block A Challenge Awards
*This this expo is only open to YouthLink’s participating teams and is not listed on the SC 4-H Engineering Challenge online registration.
