COMPETITIVE ROBOTICS TEAMS
We train students for 2 different robotics competitions, First Lego League and First Tech Challenge. Learn about each program below.
FIRST LEGO LEAGUE (3RD -8TH GRADE)
Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students ages 9-14 engage in research, problem-solving, coding and engineering – building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. As part of Challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.
FIRST TECH CHALLENGE (7TH - 12TH GRADE)
FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.
