LEGO Designs
Limited Capacity seats available

LEGO Designs is a robotics program aimed at hands-on technology, engineering, and mathematics and designed to have students working in pairs.  Our top seniors are paired with our top seventh-graders and they work together on high-interest activities/challenges in the high school's new, cutting-edge computer lab after school and on Saturdays.  The students who we are at risk of losing to one of the magnet high schools come to our high school and get to see one of our top-shelf, brand new facilities.  They also develop mentoring-type relationships with seniors who tell them about all that our high school has to offer.  Students enrolled, for example, in Advanced Placement mathematics classes serve as the senior mentors since engineering has a direct link to many of the concepts that are studied in such courses; the seventh-graders are selected via an application and accompanying rubric.
