Hosted by Rhode Island Students of the Future and Gordon School, these professional development programs will include hands-on, open ended design projects to help adults learn to use LEGO hardware and software and develop an understanding of the FIRST LEGO LEAGUE program.

This program is open to any K-12 teacher, informal education provider, community youth leader, FIRST LEGO League coach or member of industry interested in learning about LEGO design, engineering and robotics. Participants will learn the basics of building and programming LEGO EV3 robots, including how to use the motors and sensors and gears.
