Does anyone have experience working with Loudoun or Fairfax county to rent or borrow the county Lego Mindstorms kits?

 

We would like to offer a Lego Mindstorms afterschool program this fall at Horizon Elementary. We have three FLL teams at the school and more people want to join and learn. I'd like to offer the program over 6 weeks (one afternoon a week) for grades 3-5. We have an instructor, but we need kits.

 

My kids took the Lego Robotics camp through Loudoun Parks and Recreation this summer. The teachers were very supportive of the idea and seemed to think we could borrow or rent the kits from the county. Since then I have left multiple email and voicemail messages with Aaron Hopper and Jessica Hale in Loudoun and have received no responses. 

 

Can anyone refer me to someone else or suggest another avenue I can try?

 

Thanks,

Stephanie Gleason
