LEGO Robotics Club - 2019-2020

  •  

    Build and watch your creations come to life!

     

    In 4th and 5th grade, there is an emphasis on creativity and problem solving using LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 kits.  Students will use LEGO parts, sensors, motors and detailed instructions to build robots that can do really cool things!  With experience, children build more complex robots and coding, designing, and modifying to make their ideas comes to life.  Students will use more complex computer coding and engineering concepts to modify robotic behavior and design (such as designing a voice-controlled car that navigates through a maze or a sumo wrestling robot that outlasts your opponent in the ring).
