Burien’s Shorewood Elementary School will be holding a fundraiser dinner for its Robotics program from 5 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29 at the school (2725 SW 116th Street, Burien).

Here’s more from an announcement:

Shorewood Elementary started one FIRST Lego League and two Jr FLL’s this year and are planning on expanding to add at least one more of each level, leading to the need for more fundraising.  FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a national organization whose program supports science, technology, and engineering. The program is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) based, with core value emphasis on “coopertition” and professionalism.

This program allows kids to take real life concepts, with an emphasis on core values, such as cooperation and problem solving, to research, build, problem solve, work together, and come up with solutions which they present.  This includes computer programming, creative thinking, presentation, and scientific skills that will help our kids become the leaders of tomorrow. Fundraising is needed to support the three elementary Lego teams as well as the High School High Tekerz FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team #3574.  The high school mentors have led the coaching efforts at Shorewood Elementary.

Purpose: A joint effort to raise funds for the Shorewood Elementary FIRST Lego League Teams and the High School FRC Team #3574 which supports students from 5 high schools, private schools, home school, and running start within Highline School District
