JB Watkins Elementary School is participating in the First Lego League Robotics Competition this year with its first ever team of 4th graders.
PeakLogix is the corporate sponsor for this new team. This years’ theme is Nature’s Fury and our team has chosen “Sharknado Chasers” as their name.
These students will be taking their first steps into learning about robotics, programming, and learning how to work together as a team to come up with solutions to technical problems. PeakLogix’ sponsorship of the First Lego League Robotics Team is our initial contribution to foster a long term commitment and desire to help nurture young minds through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education. PeakLogix supports STEM Education and will continue to provide hands-on, inquiry based learning activities, such as learning about the engineering design process, working directly with STEM professionals through internships, and participating in field experiences and STEM-related competitions to help support the integration and alignment of K-12 and higher education programs and initiatives with workforce needs.
