Battle Academy For Teaching And Learning Awarded A LEGO Education Showcase Grant

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Students at Battle Academy for Teaching and Learning in Chattanooga will be building to “Save the Earth” on Tuesday, May 14, using LEGO creativity. Starting at 6 p.m., Battle Academy will be hosting a LEGO Education Showcase Event at 1601 Market Street, Chattanooga, Tn. 37408.

The Showcase Event is a customizable building activity that sparks creativity in participants by allowing them to use their imaginations to create LEGO models around a theme. The theme for this event is “LEGOs Save the Earth!” In honor of Earth Day and the school's continuing goal to encourage its students to take responsibility for our planet by caring for our school and community, the “LEGOs Save the Earth” theme was selected to create a bridge between discussion and action and provoke our young people to think creatively about addressing the pollution problems that plague our environment and threaten our future.

“By hosting a LEGO Education Showcase Event we are offering students, educators and community members the opportunity to work together to explore and respond to the needs of our environment, “ said event lead, Scott Rosenow. “We will also be celebrating the addition of the recently released LEGO Education Story Starter to the elementary curricula which will be used to enhance and expand the connections between creativity and literacy for our students.” 

In addition to this new program, participants will observe and interact with Battle Academy students who participate in the First Lego League Robotics and Jr. Robotics programming utilizing NXT and WeDo software and materials. The LEGO Bricks in Space program will also be highlighted during this event.

The LEGO Education Showcase Grant was made available through Education Blueprints Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing learning resources and programs that deliver education solutions to individuals, teachers, and students. Only 100 Lego Education Showcase Grants were available nation-wide.
