We are excited to announce our first Robotics team in our K-8 Program. Middle School students are participating in the FIRST® Lego League Challenge this year.
This robotics program is geared towards students nine to sixteen years old and teaches them to program, build, and work with a team while having fun and exploring the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Students are introduced to real-world problems for which they are expected to create a solution.
Students learn to compete with FIRST® core values displaying gracious professionalism and cooperation. According to the FIRST® Lego League website, “Team members learn life skills, such as respect for others, appreciation of different perspectives, cooperation, perseverance and time management. As a result of the FIRST® Robotics experience, participants gain confidence, discover new skills and interests, and shape their futures—as they, in turn, shape ours.”
District Tournaments will take place during the last two weeks of January 2022 and the State Tournament is scheduled for the last week of February 2022.
