    Grow Lee Lego Robotics Program Going Strong
    Developing Skills at a Early Age
    Lee County EDG launched it’s first Lego Robotics program in February 2015 with locations at Lee County’s libraries including Donnellson, West Point, Fort Madison and Keokuk. The initial summer program reached 65 students and had 8 Lee County companies participating as volunteers. Since the initial launch, the program has now reached over 385 Lee County students.

    For the school year, the program was utilized by Keokuk’s George Washington Elementary school reaching 150 students this school year. George Washington teacher Diane Berner commented, “This has been a wonderful introduction for students to start thinking about engineering and programming.”

    During each session, students work in pairs and use kits to build Lego models that are integrated with motors, gears, and sensors. A software program takes students step by step through the building and programing process. The software also allows students to create a programming sequence to include sound and movement to their creation.

    Grow Lee Lego Robotics is scheduled to be part of the Fort Madison Library summer program again this summer. The program was part of Lee County EDG’s Grow Lee workforce initiative designed to build a pipeline of skilled workers for Lee County employers.
