LEGO Robotics

About Lego Robotics

Our goal is to promote technology and science learning through the fun and engaging activity of building with LEGO! 
Through cooperation and commitment, kids learn how to build and program their own LEGO robotics to complete a challenge.
By fostering and encouraging learning through LEGO we can help create and form the next generation of Engineers and Scientists!
