The robotics team is an after school hours club that offers students the chance to design, build, and program a Lego Mindstorms robot. Each team composed of 2-4 students has their own robot. For 2014-15 the club will focus on preparing for and participating in the First Lego League Competition which starts in November 2014.
What is the First Lego League Competition?
Each school sends a team of up to ten students and one adult coach. The teams participate in an annual Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game) and developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project).
