Three East Sacramento area elementary schools will have their First LEGO League Robotics teams this year thanks to a donation from the GenCorp Foundation and support from SCUSD.

The teams will compete at a First LEGO League Tournament in November.

Select students from Caleb Greenwood International Baccalaureate PYP Candidate School, David Lubin Elementary School and Theodore Judah Elementary School attended a district summer camp at Will C. Wood Middle School to learn basic robotics and programming that will help prepare them for the fall competition.

The GenCorp Foundation gave a generous grant to the three elementary schools to buy the necessary robotics equipment for the competition as well as sustainable equipment that all students can use at the respective schools.

Caleb Greenwood, David Lubin and Theodore Judah are just three of many schools with robotics teams. Other district schools with First LEGO League teams are California Middle School, Sutter Middle School, Sam Brannan Middle School, Martin Luther King Jr. K-8,  Albert Einstein Middle School, Will C. Wood Middle School and the School of Engineering and Sciences.
