Elementary schools from across Knox County came together on Wednesday, September 7, for their first First Lego League work session and kick off to the season.
Gifted and talented coordinator Jennifer Carey explained, “this district day is their big day to work together. One of the core values of First Lego is mentoring each other. When we go to competition, it is about winning. When we come together as a district, it is about learning.”
The students are preparing for the regional First Lego competition scheduled for December 10 in Hazard.
“A big thank you to Steven Loveless, our Knox County Middle Lego coach, for working with these students,” said Carey.
