Students in Fayette County elementary schools in Kentucky will be learning math and science with the help of LEGO robots. While several schools in the county already had been using robotics to help students learn about science, technology, engineering and math, the expansion of the program will ensure all elementary-school students have access to these learning opportunities. "The magic is that the kids learn some geometry; they learn some trig; they learn some programming; they learn a little mechanical engineering," said Jack McKinney, education outreach chairman for an engineers' group that sponsors a summer robotics camp for the county's fourth-graders.
