Crazy Constructors.

Crazy Constructors build and test LEGO models, focusing on the work accomplished through simple machines, and learning about magnetism, torque, pulley systems, leverage, invention and design engineering along the way.

 


Contraptions Club.

Constructors take simple machines to the next level: combining them for greater efficiency. They focus on design, construction challenges, and experimentation. These activities feature many unique construction materials.

 

 

Radical Robotics.

Robo One students use laptop computers and a programming interface to instruct their NXT robots to move forward, backward, turn and follow lines.
Robo Two students use laptop computers and a programming interface to instruct their NXT robots to use multiple motors, plus light, touch, and sound sensors.

Robo Three students take their programming coding skills to the next level, solving specific game tasks and prepping for team competition. Students work with the EV3 and VEX platforms.

 JFLL and FLL Teams.

Jr. FIRST LEGO League team members compete in the annual competition hosted at LEGOLAND in January. Members meet 6-8 dates September thru January, to build their model, participate in research field trips, and prepare their presentation based on the competition theme.

FIRST LEGO League robotics team members compete in the annual local and regional competitions during November and December. Members meet twice weekly from September thru November to build their competition robot, attend research field trips, and prepare their presentation which addresses key engineering challenges based on the competition theme.
