Open to Girl Scouts in grades 4- 8, the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways supports FIRST Lego League teams. FIRST Lego is an organization that exists to further the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Every year a challenge is issued that is based on a real-world scientific topic. Teams of between six and ten girls in grades 4 though 8, guided by two adult coaches, participate in the challenge of programming an autonomous robot and developing a solution to a problem they have identified.
Girls have the opportunity to work with Lego Mindstorm Robot kits, explore simple computer programming and compete in a competition! This program is free for registered Girl Scouts.
