LEGO Robotics Club
At Killip Lego Robotics, students in grades 3-5 collaborate to solve difficult problems and challenges provided by the First Lego League. Within these projects, students are engaged in STEM through Problem Based Learning in which they build, design, and program an autonomous robot to carry out a series of functions to solve for real-world based problems. These real-world problems range from space travel, food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Students are also engaged in the following Core Values of the First Lego League:
After students finish a project, they may have opportunities to go to multiple First Lego League competitions to present their project and compete against multiple teams state and nation-wide.This year we are a rookie team and placed 17th at the qualifying tournament on December 8th at Coconino High School. Our team name chosen by the students is The Lego Side. We learned a lot from everyone at the tournament and would like to thank them all. We also would like to thank our CocoNut mentor Joshua for taking time out of his busy schedule to come over to Killip to teach us. This next semester we plan to continue to work on the Into Orbit missions and prepare for next year.One of our proudest moments of the tournament came when team members cheered on Ben and Isaiah as they showed persistence and calmness as they took a penalty in order to retry a mission. The robot came apart but they kept their cool and reassembled it and completed the mission with success. Go team!If you are unable to view the YouTube video below you can click here for a QuickTime version.
