Inventioneers Help Nurture Young Engineers at Academy

We were excited to be invited to demonstrate our FIRST LEGO League robot to aspiring young engineers at the "Snack Attack" Jr. FLL Exhibition at Londonderry's Southern NH Montessori Academy (SNHMA).  Londonderry's high school robotics team, the PVC Pirates, conducted a 15 week course introducing students to mechanized LEGO machines and the science of nutrition.  Students showed off their models and research at the exhibition held on December 21.  The Inventioneers Jaiden, Bryeton, and TJ Evarts
encouraged the students, ages 6-9, to get involved in FLL and then put our robot through its paces for the students, their parents, SNHMA staff and event judges who included our coach, Lisa Evarts.
