The New Hampshire LEGO League is pleased to offer a half-day Master Builders camp this April Vacation Week. During school vacation week April 28th-May 2nd, from 8am-Noon, we will be offering all the fun and excitement of our Master Builders program for New Hampshire students ages 6-14.
This session will include LEGO TECHNIC building, a NEW Stock Car Racing Challenge, Free-building, LEGO Game building, LEGO Set building, and more. As with all our programs there is a strong emphasis on social skills development including teamwork, public speaking, positive interactions, and behavioral respect.
The event will be held at Villa Augustina School Gym in Goffstown, NH Monday April 28th – Friday May 2nd from 8:00am-Noon(drop off no earlier than 7:45 please.)
Students at the Milton Elementary School have accepted the NH LEGO League Master Builders challenge and will be spending the next five weeks working on various projects to improve their LEGO building, social interaction and STEM skills.
These twelve young men and women, grades 3-5, have already gotten off to a great start by easily completing the "Free Build" challenge. We look forward to seeing them in action as we go forward with the first session, but they have already proven that their building skills are formidable and their creativity is boundless.

As technology continues to evolve it has become obvious that robotics will play a major role in shaping the way we work and live. The NH LEGO League is pleased to offer an 8 week course to teach kids ages 8-14 wishing to learn or improve their understanding of how robots can be used to solve problems. Using design, programming, teamwork, and problem solving skills, students will solve a unique challenge designed specifically for the NH LEGO LEAGUE robotics program.
During the session the students will be introduced to standard programming options using motors, sensors and LEGO Technic parts. The NH LEGO League provides all the parts required for the program including laptops, robots, sensors and LEGO Technic pieces. Students will work in teams to complete the challenge using a myriad of strategies and concepts.
The NH LEGO League is pleased to announce that it has been asked to participate in the Bartlett Elementary School Math and Science Night on Thursday, February 20th from 6-7pm. In conjunction with the Bartlett Elementary PTA the NH LEGO League will be providing use of its Bricktona500 gravity track and teaching kids about the effects of gravity and weight distribution.
"We are excited to be a part of the event. Bartlett is a great school, with tremendous faculty, staff and students. We are pleased to be able to support this important event." stated Dan Hughes NH LEGO League founder.
We also want to thank the Bartlett PTA for sponsoring the track and cars. Each student attending the event will receive a free LEGO race car that they will build, race and then take home to keep. We look forward to meeting all the students on Thursday and seeing if they can "Rev Their Engines" to understand the "Gravity of the Situation".
This season the New Hampshire LEGO League fielded five teams to participate in the FIRST LEGO and Jr FIRST LEGO programs. Each team focused on a different aspect of the natural disaster theme by looking at blizzards, earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, and asteroid strikes. With a short ten week window the teams were able to gain a detailed understanding of the problems that face people during natural disasters and develop some great solutions to those problems. Teams earned various recognition in areas of innovation, design, creativity and overall awards including a "Chairkids Award" and a statewide 3rd place finish at the FLL state competition.
Congratulations to the following members for earning their individual awards from the NH LEGO League for the roles they played on their individual team.
