Recently, both schools participated in a Lego Competition sponsored by Techie For Life. They were challenged to create and build their own unique Lego designs. The categories were: functional, artistic and scale-model.
Techie for Life sent each school, individual packs of Legos to use and document.
The students were excited about the hands-on challenge and the freedom to design their own creations.
From living room scale models, animals, cellos, spin-tops and light rays, the Lego creations were endless.
In the end, both schools won awards in various categories including:
- Most Popular
- Most Artistic
- Best Scale-Model
Several received honorable mentions and received a myriad of prizes based on technology and robotics. Maple Lake Academy was well represented and made a lasting impression on the judges.
