Junior First Lego League Expo Coming This Weekend

After conducting research, teams build a model with motorized parts using LEGO® elements and present their research journey on a Show Me poster. Through research and working in teams, children have a chance to explore a real-world issue to gain an appreciation for and interest in science and technology.
