Grafton LEGO League Jr.: New Parents Information Meeting on October 17

Grafton LEGO League Jr., for students in 5K through 3rd grade, is holding an information meeting for parents of children interested in participating. The session will be held on Tuesday, October 17 from 6:30 - 7:30 in the Grafton Elementary School Library. Parents will learn more about LEGO League and how to register their child. Parents of children who previously participated do not need to attend. Registration opens on October 16

The Grafton LEGO League is a district-wide, hands-on program that engages children through experimentation and a culture of sharing and learning from others. It goes beyond just “playing with LEGOS”.  After a 12-week program that includes research, building and computer programming, teams have the opportunity to showcase their project at the Grafton LEGO Expo on April 14.  Click here for more information.
