Students from the pre-engineering program at Knox Central have been mentoring elementary students in preparation for the annual Lego Robotics competition.
“These gifted high school students share their knowledge of robotics and mentor our elementary Lego teams,” explained Jennifer Carey, gifted coordinator for KCPS. Carey along with teacher Travis Mills have been working to implement Lego at all seven elementary schools and two middle schools.
“It is a great opportunity for our students to work as a team, learn computer programming, problem solving, and life skills for the 21st century,” said Carey.
All teams will compete at the region level in Hazard on December 9th.
