This fall, our robotics team competed in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) program, culminating in an official day-long robotics competition at Steinert High School in Hamilton Township, NJ.
This was an amazing experience for everyone involved because throughout the fall we learned SO MUCH about the science research topic (Hydro Dynamics – human water cycle), while working cooperatively as a team and building and programming robots for the various robot missions.
The experience was so REWARDING, we wanted to find a way to offer it to families who had not participated in the fall (as well as to the FLL team members who wanted to continue) …
… which is why we have started the ROBOTICS DEVELOPMENT TEAM!
The development team is a 12-week program beginning in January for kids in grades 3 to 8. It will meet on Mondays from 5:30-7:00pm.
The primary focus is to teach kids how to work as a team to build and program robots for the actual FLL robot competition missions (there are a total of 18 programming challenges).
Over the course of the program, the children will be divided into separate small teams so that each child can participate fully in the training.
The last class will be competition day (with family and friends invited to watch) where the teams will be judged on the robot missions, just like in the official competition. The team with the highest score will be awarded a trophy.
Is the Robotics Development Team Right for My Child?
If you can answer YES to the questions below, then, your child is ready to begin his or her journey on this awesome endeavor!
Is your child interested in learning about robotics and programming?
Does your child love to create and build with LEGOs?
Is your child emotionally mature to understand there is give and take in working in a team?
Is your child self-motivated and can he or she work independently to accomplish tasks?
While it’s helpful if your son or daughter has taken robotics courses (either with us or elsewhere), it is not necessary. What’s more important is his or her enthusiasm, curiosity, and desire to learn.
Next Steps …
Enrollment will be purposely kept small because we want to ensure every member gets the individual attention he or she needs to learn about robot building and programming.
If you are interested in giving your child this amazing and UNIQUE opportunity, please register early as the enrollment limit will be strictly adhered to.
