Governor Hassan and Dean Kamen visit FIRST Junior STEAM

Governor Maggie Hassan, inventor and FIRST  founder Dean Kamen, superintendent Debra Livingston, and other special guests visited the FIRST Junior STEAM Ahead fourth graders from Green Acres Elementary School on May 14. It was a chance for the children to show off what they've learned this year. During lessons that apply math, language arts and science concepts, students design, build, and program robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 and other elements.
