MSE's 2nd and 3rd grade Lego teams had a blast at their FIRST Lego League Explore competition. Both teams received the Team poster trophy displaying their journey throughout the year as they completed the Cargo Connect challenge. Students researched the many ways cargo is transported all over the world, then created innovative models using Legos of cargo transporting machines, such as conveyor belt, trucks, cargo ships and many others. The team used the WeDo 2.0 computer program to program the cargo sorter. They represented MSE very well, as they nervously explained all of this to the judges. The teams received medals for participating in the a new FIRST Lego League Explore challenge piloted at the Doolittle Institute. They will continue the challenge throughout the rest of the year as they add sensors and more motors to their project. We are very proud of our Lego teams!
