Robotics: Intro to FLL (Grades 4-5)
Students master the principles of robotics as they learn to build and program autonomous robots. They examine the mechanical and programming aspects using LEGO Education’s We-Do, NXT, EV3 and Tetrix kits. Students learn how to program their robots using software developed by National Instruments as they progress from 1st – 8th grade. Curriculum materials developed by the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon enable students to learn at their own pace. Advanced students build more powerful robots made with metal components and programmed with more sophisticated languages.
FLL Intro Robotics—Grades 4-5: Students learn to program NXT and EV3 robots using a variety of sensors (color, sound, touch, ultrasonic, gyroscopic, etc.). This introductory First Lego League Program helps prepare students for our FLL program the following year. Students follow along on a self-paced video trainer and receive challenges by the instructor to perform and master before moving on to the next programming challenge.
The dedication and effort put forth by our parent volunteers is the key to our program’s success. Volunteers work with coaches and students/teams after school and on weekends as well as attending competitions! To volunteer, please contact us below!
In addition to our after school robotics programs, the school offers a year-long FTC elective course and a trimester FLL enrichment for our middle school students. They are exposed to a variety of programming languages and confronted with a number of challenges.
Summer camps are offered to students of various abilities. The camp atmosphere allows students to focus and hone their robotic skills in an exciting environment which concludes with friendly competitions.
