Lego Robotics

This year’s First Lego League (FLL) Expo has been postponed to March, 2021.

Starting this year (2020), the First Lego League activities (commonly referred to as Lego Robotics) are divided into three age groups:

The “Challenge” group is essentially the 4th and 5th Grade “Lego Robotics” team we have had for years.

Likewise, the “Explore” group is essentially the Jr. Lego Robotics teams we have had.

New this year, the “Discover” activities will likely provide a better experience for Kinders.

If you would like to learn more about these groups, you can read more at: www.firstlegoleague.org/season#resources

Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-10, FIRST® LEGO® League – EXPLORE is a hands-on program designed to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it toward discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them.  Just like FIRST® LEGO® League – CHALLENGE, this program features a real-world challenge, to be solved by research, critical thinking, and imagination. Guided by adult coaches and the Jr.FLL Core Values, students work with LEGO elements and moving parts to build ideas and concepts and present them for review. Team Members get to:

  •  Design and build solutions using LEGO elements
  •   Apply real-world math and science concept
  •   Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  •   Learn team-building and presentation skills
  •   Develop Show Me poster

Students participating in Jr. Lego League will be divided into teams of 5 or 6 and assigned a parent coach.

Meetings: TBD based on volunteer coaches

If you are interested in coaching an FLL-EXPLORE (Jr. Lego Robotics) team, contact Angie Schrader

We will start registering teams when we have parent coaches in place.

FLL introduces students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society. Elementary and middle-school students get to:

  •   Design, build, test, and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology
  •   Apply real-world math and science concepts
  •   Research challenges facing today’s scientists
  •   Learn critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills
  •   Participate in tournaments and celebrations

2020 Season Lego Robotics:

  • The FCA Lego Robotics club will begin meeting in the fall with an informational meeting TBD.
  • Meeting times TBD.
  • All participants will have a chance to work on a project. Fort Caspar Academy will register one team of 10 to compete in the district competition Spring 2021. All club members will have a chance to compete for a spot on the 10-member team.

Playing makes being active more fun. You get creative when you want to play, and it’s this creativity—your creativity—that can help motivate us to be more active.
