Jr. First Lego League Celebration

Dates: Saturday, April 4
Time: 10AM- 12PM
Free Admission
Location: Alcott Center, 530 Bernard Drive

Join us at the Alcott Center, as we celebrate the history makers of tomorrow! This event showcases the work of local junior (ages 6 – 9) Lego teams, who have been working on projects for the past 3 months. Each team defines a problem, does research, and then creates a solution to the problem, using Lego robotics. At this event, they will be showing their work with displays, presentations and working robots. Last year, 17 teams from 3 different counties participated. Spectators are welcome. Please note: This is an event for Lego teams, which are already formed. The Raupp Museum does not have a Lego team for you to join. If you have any questions, you can contact the Raupp Museum at museum@bgparks.org.

Adult Events & Programs

ESL History Reading & Conversation Club

Dates: Tuesdays – January 7, 14, 21, 28, Feburary 4, 11, 18 and 25
Time: 7 – 8:30PM
Fee: None

Are you new to this country? Do you wonder about all of the historical people your child is learning about in school? Do you wish you had more chances to practice speaking English? If so, this club is for you. Every week, we will meet at the Raupp Museum to learn about one important person in U.S. History, and practice speaking English together. There is no fee, and all levels are welcome. The reading will be posted 2 weeks ahead of each meeting to give everyone time to prepare. This is a drop in program; so, people can come to as many classes as they would like. To get on our mailing list, please contact us at museum@bgparks.org.
