LEGO Robotics

About Lego Robotics

 

 

Our goal is to promote technology and science learning through the fun and engaging activity of building with LEGO! 
Through cooperation and commitment, kids learn how to build and program their own LEGO robotics to complete a challenge.
By fostering and encouraging learning through LEGO we can help create and form the next generation of Engineers and Scientists!

This Year's Challenge:  City Shaper

 

 

When does it meet?

From 3:45-5:00 Every Wednesday (see schedule below) in the Advanced Computer Lab

Who can join?

Students currently enrolled in 5th-8th Grade are eligible to join robotics teams and participate in the First Lego League Robotics competitions. This will involve a regional tournament in March (at EAS) with the possibility of participating in the FLL Championship.
