The elementary and middle school programs at Grace Academy had the opportunity to be a part of the Lego Robotics League. 

Students who signed up for the extracurricular program participate weekly to learn about STEM, or science, technology, engineering and mathematics, principles. 

The program is in the beginning stages of development.

Students have been working in small groups to complete Lego building challenges that will grow to include robotics. 

Beginning this month, they will be working in small groups to solve problems, demonstrate teamwork and use the engineering design process within the WeDo and Mindstorm Lego software to build robots that complete various challenges. 

This year, the students will display their robotics challenges at a spring educational showcase at Grace Academy, which is off Cearfoss Pike.
