Parent, FIRST LEGO League, Winsted, Connecticut

When I heard about the FIRST LEGO League program, I knew it would be a great idea for my son to join. I was excited about the new ideas my son would learn about engineering, teamwork, and good values. We were brand new to the program and weren't sure what to expect. His mentor, Justin Ivey (a FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA member), has been a good inspiration and has encouraged the team to bring out ideas they never thought they had.

My son enjoys building and programming the robots and creating a project from ground up with the help of his team members and encouragement from their mentor. He comes home excited to tell us about the new things he learned, whether it’s about coding the robot to complete a mission in the game, or a new fact about the water cycle for the team’s project. I’m glad that he joined FIRST LEGO League and to see the excitement it brought to my son. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store.
