Starting in 2006, Envisa helped launch the LEGO League after school programs in Framingham, MA. Initially focused on teams at the McCarthy Elementary School, the program grew to encompass teams from eight different schools in the district and provided opportunities for well over one hundred children to participate in Jr. FIRST LEGO League and an introduction to NXT robotics. In addition to providing coaches, computers and other materials, Envisa also helped with financial sponsorship of two FLL Expo events, providing employees to serve as judges to evaluate team projects. Because of its focus on teamwork, real-world problem-solving, creativity, engineering design and robotics, the FIRST LEGO League prepares students with hands-on skills needed to succeed in the 21st century marketplace.
