First Lego League - Dalmilling Primary

  1. 1. Learning for Sustainability with The First Lego League
  2. 2. FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge A global STEM challenge for 9-16 year olds For teams of young people, to encourage an interest in real-world themes and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers. FIRST® LEGO® League Explore A STEM programme for 6-9 year olds Encouraging children to investigate a real-world theme, develop teamwork, design and programming skills – and have fun. FIRST® LEGO® League Discover A programme for 4-6 year olds This programme develops STEM skills from an early age. Children explore a real-world theme and learn through play.
  3. 3. First Lego League Challenge • Piloted in 1998 and first season ran in 1999/2000 • I came across it in 2019 through an email that was sent out to schools and asked for some PEF money to buy a Lego Mindstorms and enter the City Shaper Mission with an afterschool club • What attracted me to using it? • All the themes around the competitions involve real world challenges • Uses problem solving • Pupils learn technology skills, learn engineering skills • Pupils have to think about the world around them
  4. 4. Previous themes • All around sustainability. • Arctic Impact (2001) • study global climate changes and the potential impact of global warming on humanity. • City Sights (2002) • explored the challenges that urban planners face in order to provide basic services. • No Limits (2004) • The scientist Dr. Justin Case presented a new area of robot technology: how robots may help people with disabilities in their every-day life. • Climate Connections (2008) • The Climate Connections challenge was all about the correlations climate had, has and will have on our lives
  5. 5. FLL Challenge 2019/2020 - City Shaper • City Shaper • Mission was to shape your growing city with more stable, beautiful, useful, accessible and sustainable buildings and structures. After school club of 10 x P5 & P6 pupils Varying needs – 2 x ASD, 1 x ADHD Won a trophy at regional final – Team who displayed Lego League Core Values. I knew I was onto something that could teach sustainability that was engaging and could enhance skills for the future.
  6. 6. I asked for more PEF! I was interested in doing a whole class project. This would be achievable through the First Lego League Junior programme – Boomtown Build which was to run in term 3. • Teams were challenged to explore the growing needs and challenges of the people in our community. Teams were to imagine and create a building that solves a problem and makes life easier, happier, or more connected for the people that use it. It used Lego WeDo 2.0 rather than Lego Mindstorms I was given money for 6 x Lego WeDo 2.0s and 6 Lego Boomtown builds and entry for 2 teams to the regional festival Lockdown came and stopped it all………………..
  7. 7. First Lego League Junior Playmaker challenge • August – Lego kits for Boomtown Build had never been distributed so the change to the new Playmakers challenge was easy. • 6 Playmaker Lego kits • Engineer notebooks • Teacher guides • Festival pack • Medals/Certificates And we locked down again……………………
  8. 8. First Lego League Junior Playmaker challenge • Finally in May I got it up and running
  9. 9. Where does Playmaker sit within the 17 SDGs? • Playmakers challenge took on the Missions of creating sustainable play spaces from using derelict or underutilised spaces in the community. The play spaces had to suit all people including those with disabilities and include ways they could play together. • I included an element of Climate Action. • It also meshed well with thinking about HWB.
  10. 10. Playmaker programme also gave discussion opportunities for children’s rights
  11. 11. First Lego League Core Values Teach about each core value as you move through the sessions.
  12. 12. Heart Monitor Build
  13. 13. Treadmill joined to heart monitor
  14. 14. Our journey…..
  15. 15. Learning to code with the glowing snail The WeDo motor connects by Bluetooth to the Ipad. The coding blocks are created on the Ipad and then the robot moves or plays a sound or changes colour
  16. 16. The WeDo motor connects by Bluetooth to the Ipad. The coding blocks are created on the Ipad and then the robot moves or plays a sound or changes colour
  17. 17. Engineering notebooks
  18. 18. Engineering was used to make the flag raise on the heart monitor
  19. 19. The next project created a cooling fan
  20. 20. Building the treadmill, attaching it to the heart monitor and making it work
  21. 21. The moving satellite project showed us how to code things to move with a motor
  22. 22. Problem solving
  23. 23. We had to make the spy robot move by thinking about how to use the motor and attach wheels as well.
