LES Students in STEM competitions!
Our 4th Graders:
Some of our 4th grade students in Miss Wilton's class entered and WON the Battle of the Brains competition! The contest is sponsored by Science City & Burns and McDonnell to help decide the next exhibit at Science City. The LES entry was GeneTech - an exhibit to help explain genetics, heredity, and genetic technolgy in an engaging and interactive format. Visitors to the propsed exhibit could see how different DNA structures create different traits/features, how altered genes may create health issues, how genetic technology can affect our food, and how to solve a crime using DNA. WOW! We are so proud of our students! Look for GeneTech coming to Science City!
Our 5th Graders:
Some of our 5th grade students have entered the First Lego League Comptition. First Lego League is a worldwide themed research and robotics competition. LES has 2 teams entered - the Titanium Monkeys and the Gear Geeks. There are 4 competitions from November through the finals at Union Station on January 18th. Students will find out if they are in the finals toward the end of December. There is a lot of practice, work, and effort put forth to prepare for these competitions. Great job LES students!
