Description: FIRST LEGO League teams apply science, engineering, and math concepts, and their imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS-based robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills. In addition to the robot, teams are also required to prepare a research project and presentation. The season culminates in a day long competition against other teams where they will run their robot through a series of missions and present their research project in front of a panel of judges.
Requirements: Students in grades 5-8, with a teacher’s recommendation. This is a competitive robotics team that must complete a number of activities within the time frame of the season.
Schedule: The season runs from September through January. We typically meet twice after school until 4:30. Register online through our Activities Department - Fall Activities.
