Ask any random group of architects, engineers, programmers or new homebuilders if they played with Legos as children and there’s a good chance an overwhelming majority are going to answer with a resounding “yes!”
So, it comes as no surprise when members of Tri Pointe Homes Las Vegas were presented with the opportunity to lend a fundraising hand to help the Mighty Mustangs First Lego Challenge Team from Joseph M. Neal STEAM Academy pay for their trip to an international competition their response was the same. They were all in!
The impressive fourth- and fifth-graders from the Neal Mighty Mustangs First Lego Challenge Team recently won first place in the regional First Lego League, an international robotics competition where students use Lego electronic and mechanical components to build and program a large, self-propelled robot and solve various challenges. The Neal Mighty Mustangs team, composed of six girls and two boys, competed against 200 other Nevada teams, earning an invitation to the international finals in Worcester, Massachusetts, in June.
According to a fundraising letter from the school: “Working in the First Lego League has given these students valuable hands-on training in technology and teamwork skills that are directly applicable to the workplace: project development, mechanical design and engineering, as well as entrepreneurial skills such as fundraising, budgeting, writing and graphic design.”
