First Lego League is an international competition across 60 countries, where kids use innovation, robotics, and core values to help address a worldwide concern.
2012's challenge is to help seniors deal with a problem in their lives.
Choose Your Own Adventure editorial team and author Doug Wilhelm (who has written several Choose books and several other titles for young readers) met with a South Burlington, Vermont team who was inspired by our books.
Luke, Andrew, and Damon read lots of CYOA books and thought about ways interactive writing could be used to engage seniors in discussing choices they encountered in their lives.
They created a unique program that will allow seniors to chart stories, decisions, and critical junctures in life, and share this information in an interactive way that would be very meaningful to relatives and friends.
We wish the team best of luck as they continue with this very promising project, and we were very pleased to see how reading Choose Your Own Adventure has inspired these kids in their creative thinking.
