What is it? This advanced LEGO EV3/EVA robotics course for students in grades 6-8 is a cooperative, challenge-based offering that builds on the lessons students learned in Intro to Robotics. This offering stresses the importance of teamwork, collaborative problem solving, programming logic, and communication skills. Students will work in TEAMS of 2+ with the next generation of LEGO robotics kits to solve more complex programming tasks and challenges, all pushing and helping students towards the completion of a Final Challenge!
Who is it for? Students in grades 6-8 who have completed Intro to Robotics. The ability to work collaboratively is a must. Strong computer and independent reading/writing skills are highly recommended. Students will be encouraged to communicate with their teammate(s) using their HCS email, and to collaborate on presentation materials via Google Drive.
When is it? This course is offered once during the school year, in the Spring. Classes meet on Tuesdays.
Final Challenge: Mini FLL Each class has the goal of accomplishing a "Final Challenge" as a team - a challenge that requires them to stretch their robot building and programming skills, as well as communication and creative thinking. This Fall, Teams will work together to solve one (or more) of the challenges presented to FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams last year! Teams will have to work together to build, program, and present their robot on Presentation Day. All members of each team will participate in a presentation of their team's work, then run their robot for the class. Teachers, parents, and siblings are welcome to attend on Presentation Day!
How do I sign up? Watch ParentSquare for upcoming open registration dates. Registration is limited to 20 students due to kit availability.
