Spotlight: A FIRST at Penn Wynne

Since 2008, Penn Wynne has been home to the District's FIRST Lego League program. The initiative is designed to inspire children's interest in science and technology within a framework of teamwork and friendly competition. The League features a "challenge" made up of three elements: a robot game, project and core values. Students explore actual problems that today's scientists and engineers are trying to solve and develop their own innovative solutions.
