Over the last three months, 2 teams of 8 students in Grades 4-8 participated in a global STEAM competition, among 6 other teams in South China. The theme of this year’s FIRST® LEGO® League Competition is ‘Cargo Connect’. Students had to design, assemble and test their LEGO robots to deliver packages and complete certain tasks along the way. They learned about how cargo is transported, sorted, sanitized and delivered to its destination, and showcased their teamwork as they built a product for the future of transportation. In the COVID era, this non-touch delivery solution is much more meaningful than ever.
