Idea Club - Mission 2: Maze

Did you participate in our first mission? What did you think? If you weren't able to participate in September that's ok. We're about to open our 2nd mission...mazes! IDEA Club is still only open to 4th-8th graders (and homeschool equivalent) holding Lillie M Evans Library cards. Submissions from Mission 1 will be viewable until close on Saturday, October 10th.

IDEA Club is made possible by a grant from Project Next Generation and the Illinois State Library to establish a Lego program we're calling "IDEA Club" (Imagine, Design, Enact, Achieve). This program is currently limited to 4th-8th graders (and homeschool equivalent) while we fulfill our grant requirements.
