My LEGO Journey

Description: How I came to be a FIRST LEGO Robotics team coach.

Math Science Engineering


James, I really enjoyed this narrative because you kept yourself as a learner — about robotics, about kids, about the craft of teaching — uppermost in the story. It helped me understand how your passion for the subject (and the kids) led you to leadership. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your journey--it helped to validate my own journey as an engineering and robotics teacher!  I love how you leveraged this learning to lead others!  Kudos to you!

My daughter participated in her schools First Lego League class.  Her middle school actually runs it as a half (I believe) year course with the intention of competing at the local, state and national levels.  It was such a popular program that the school actually had to run two classes.  Each class was a team that competed in the competitions.  One of the teams, unfortunately not my daughter's ; ( , made it to the national competition that was held in St, Louis that year.
