First Lego League comes to IES Sundsvall


For the first time ever IES Sundsvall will be participating in the First Lego League challenge.  This competition hosted by Technichus in Härnosänd asks students to solve problems using lego robotics and research.  Ms. Hoglund, our new Year 5 Science and Math teacher, and Mr. Painter-Main will be leading a group of year 5 and 6 students as they solve their challenges.  This year is all about being a senior citizen and finding ways to overcome difficulties of that stage of life.  The students will have 8 weeks to build and program a robot that can help seniors achieve everyday tasks.  They also need to meet with seniors, and help design a solution to a problem that they face.  They will present all this at Technichus on Nov 10th.  Not busy that day, come on out to cheer us on!
