April 5, 2017: The McKinley Lego Lions participated in the first District 20 STEAM Expo. William McKinley I.S. 259 presented their “Lego Robotics Animal Allies” exhibit to the hundreds of people who attended the event. In the development of this project, the team learned about coding, building, collaboration, and teamwork. The group worked tirelessly over the past six months to research and design ways to support the improvement of animal and human interactions.

This program focused on teaching the Engineering Design Process to give students the opportunity to create and utilize Robotics that solve real-world issues. We are very proud of all the hard work and dedication to this cause that they showed, and hope that it has inspired others to do the same.
