Library hosts Lego challenge for youngsters

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 by ANITA HIRSCH Special to The Press in Local News

Parkland Community Library, South Whitehall, recently hosted a Lego Challenge as part of a variety of STEAM-based projects for kids ages 2-5.

Head of Youth Services Jaclyn Hoimes gave four challenges to the children.

They were each given a cup of assorted Legos to work with and they could work individually or in groups of two or three.

Each challenge was timed for five minutes.

The first challenge was to make an animal or part of an animal and the second was to make the Eiffel Tower.

The third was to make a vehicle or other mode of transportation, and the last was to make a robot figure.
