Lego League Jr. (Every Tuesday for 12 weeks starting on January 15th) 

Hello St Thomas Family, I just wanted everyone to know Mr. Bohlke and Mr. Davidoff (father of Melody 3rd grade, and Kira Preschool 3’s) will be starting a Lego club in the spring. There will be limited space because of the number of coaches and kids allowed per team.

                                                            Cost: $120/student

                                                            When: Every Tuesday for 12 weeks, starting on January 15th



It’s never too early to discover STEM. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math concepts. FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love  LEGO®.

Guided by adult coaches, teams (up to 6 members) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Then they create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the FIRST Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking. At the close of each season, teams come together at Expos to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun!



Proven, verifiable impact! See how immersion in FIRST Programs, even at an early age, positively impacts students throughout their education and even into their careers.

FIRST LEGO League Jr. teams get to:

  • Explore challenges facing today's scientists
  • Discover real-world math and science
  • Design and build a challenge-related model using LEGO® Elements
  • Create a Show Me Poster and practice presentation skills
  • Develop teamwork skills
  • Choose to participate in Expos and showcases
  • Engage in team activities guided by the FIRST Core Values


The FIRST Core Values are the cornerstones of the program. They are among the fundamental elements that distinguish FIRST LEGO League Jr. from other programs of its kind. We ask that everyone associated with every team understand and honor these Core Values.

We express the FIRST philosophies of Gracious Professionalism and Cooperation through our Core Values:

  • Discovery: We explore new skills and ideas.
  • Innovation: We use creativity and persistence to solve problems.
  • Impact:  We apply what we learn to improve our world.
  • Inclusion: We respect each other and embrace our differences.
  • Teamwork: We are stronger when we work together.
  • Fun: We enjoy and celebrate what we do!
