Fresno County schools are trying to nurture the builder in some kids at a very early age.

The Fresno County Office of Education hosted Water-Wise, a Lego League event at Hoover High School.

The Lego League is targeted to students ages 6 to 9 years old to help them develop science, technology, engineering and math skills as well as creativity and critical thinking, all of which will prepare the young builders for future robotics competitions.

"We have a place where they can build their trophy out of Lego," Jonathan Dueck with the Fresno County Office of Education said. "We have an origami center, the Fresno State Physics Team is here presenting as well as Books for Kids. So, the students all have a chance to look at STEM activities and programs available for them now and during the summer."
