In the LEGO®
League Challenge, teams earn points in three major categories:
- Team Culture – Teams earn points based on how well they work together and assist competitor teams!
- Innovation Project – Meet and interview real world experts from your community on a given topic, identify a real-world problem you want to solve, and then as a team, come up with an innovative solution.
- Robot Design – design a robot from scratch using LEGO® parts in order to complete the challenges. Earn points for an innovative robot design and for completing the challenges. Not only do the kids learn about problem solving, but they will also be introduced to the basics of coding and computer programming.
Students learn many skills including: programming using SPIKE Prime software, mechanical design, critical thinking, problem identification, problem solving, working in a team environment, project management, presentation skills, and marketing.
Each team typically has 6-8 students. As more students want to join, we simply add more teams.
Season Duration: runs from the end of August through December/January. But during the off-season is a great time to come out and try a challenge or two to determine if you want to join a formal team next season.
Meeting Times: During the off-season we meet every Sunday from 3-5pm. During the competition season, we typically meet twice a week. Days and times vary based on
student and volunteer availability.
