Robotics club for 6th and 7th graders who want to learn to program lego robots to complete missions. We will prepare for our first competition on November 3, 2018. The Robotics team will be part of the FIRST Lego League program. We will be providing a team of 12 middle school students with the opportunity to compete at the North Denver Qualifier at Moore Middle School in Arvada.
FIRST is a robotics competition founded by inventor Dean Kamen. FIRST, an acronym for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology,” is an international phenomenon, which pairs middle schools with corporate engineering sponsors to build a robot which will compete in a sport-like event. The goal of the FIRST program is to give students hands-on experience working with real engineers, so that engineers and scientists are seen as role models in the same way professional athletes are. Support of our team offers many benefits to the community.
Local students will have the chance to learn and develop many new skills. They will be learning not only engineering and design skills, but will also be developing leadership, business, public speaking, coaching, and communication skills. We are looking to provide these students the necessary skills to become the next leaders in our community and beyond.
Meeting time is every Monday and Thursday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
