2018-2019

 

We are a FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. Team 4323 - B.E.E.s (Brownie-Daisy, Exceptional, Engineers),  a Girl Scout Team of girls in the Kindergarden through 3rd grade.  We love working together and having fun. We are learning about simple machines and how to build them. This is our fourth year and we are so so excited about this year's challenge "Mission Moon." We will be learning all we can about the moon. We cannot wait until our inspiration model comes in and we incorropate it with what we have started... "Life on the Moon"    
 
We are a Girl Scout Team in Titusville Florida. We have been working together since mid June and are enjoying learning about new things and trying new concepts. We started out learning about "bees" which is our team name. B.E.E.s is an acronym for Brownie/Daisy Exceptional Engineers. 
 
TEAM RESEARCH: 
We decided to build mission control and a Moon Base
We used books, the internet (reading articles and watching videos) and information we have learned in school.
We learned so much as we built our “Show Me” Poster. During our research we found more information on hydro power and how we currently use this method of creating power. We will continue our research as we get ready to make a video and explain fun and interesting facts about how we use water.
We are working on our model so we have something to bring to the September Kick-off at the KSC Visitor's Center.
We are having a great time creating our model and adding all the simple machines... Lever, Screw, Wheel and Axle, Incline plane, Wedge and Pulley. 

FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. team members and adult Coaches and Volunteers all agree – season-ending events (Expos and Houston's FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. World Expo) are the most amazing, inspiring experiences they’ve ever had. Where else can you make new friends, share ideas, watch older kids compete with robots, and get pumped up over technology all while having the time of your lives? Kids realize more than ever that FIRST is all about teamwork, sharing, helping others, and respect.
