Inventioneers Team Up with Montessori Academy

Londonderry, NH - The Inventioneers, Londonderry’s own FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Champions, have joined forces this summer with the Southern NH Montessori Academy (SNHMA). The global award winning team is teaching three summer camp sessions all with a LEGO theme as part of SNHMA’s Camp DaVinci program. In June, the week-long camp was called Intro to LEGO Robotics and focused on robot building techniques and mechanics. Week two, held earlier this month, honed in on LEGO simple machines and vehicles. Week three, Young Inventors, to be held August 8-12 , will teach campers how to bring their own inventions from ideas on paper to working LEGO models.
The SNHMA is offering a wide range of summer programs and joined with the Inventioneers for the camps after team members led a successful Jr. FLL season at the Academy last fall. Tristan Evarts, 15 is the program lead and is joined by Jaiden Evarts, 13 and Paige Balcom, 17, as counselors. Nearly 70 students are participating in the program.
