Each year, FIRST® LEGO® League Jr. presents a new and exciting challenge aimed at igniting the creativity of children, age six to 10. For 2016-2017, that theme is “Creature CrazeSM,” which aims to challenge students to explore the wonders of the animal kingdom. And, now, Long Island children from more than 60 teams will have their chance to present all that they have learned about the subject during a series of three FIRST LEGO League Jr. Expos, presented by School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI).


During each event, students will have the opportunity to present a LEGO elements model with motorized parts, along with a “Show Me” poster, that represents their findings about the animal kingdom. Whether the children chose to focus on animals indigenous to the jungle or those commonly found in their own backyard, they were tasked with exploring animals and their habitats.


They will present these findings at one of three Expos, taking place as follows:

Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 a.m. – Mineola High School

Saturday, March 4 at 12:30 p.m. – Mineola High School

Sunday, March 5 at 7:30 a.m. – Longwood High School
