Lego Robotics Club generally meets in the spring once the Lego League season and Christmas break are over. Signed parent permission slips are required for participation.


Feb. 8
After school Lego Club will start meeting this week. We meets on Mondays until 3:45. We meet Feb. 9, March 2, March 9, March 16, March 23, and March 30.

We only meet once in February because I have meetings out of the building and President's Day. Near the end of March, I'll send home another sign up form for April and May after school Lego robotics. By April, spring sports will be practicing outside and the Lego Leaguers may be different schedules due to sports practices.

This club is a new opportunity for Lego Leaguers or students who want to learn more about programming the Lego robots.
We will start in later February or early March and meet once a week from 3:15-3:45. The fourth graders will probably meet on Tuesdays. There will be a sign up form which parents need to fill out. Students will sign up to attend the club for a specified number of weeks. Club size will be limited so there are ample opportunities for the participants to work with the robots. We will focus on using sensors and completing some of the missions we didn't get done during the Lego League season as well as letting the kids design some of their own missions. I think it will be fun but challenging. It will not lead to a contest. It's our "offseason practice" opportunity.

Eventually, there will be a club for third graders. They will meet at a different time than the fourth graders and work on different challenges than the fourth graders. It will probably be Mondays from 3:15-3:45. There will be a sign up form which parents need to fill out. Students will sign up to attend the club for a specified number of weeks. Club size will be limited so there are ample opportunities for the participants to work with the robots. The third graders will be learning some programming basics which are new to them. It will be challenging and fun. This will also help me determine who might be good Lego Leaguers for the 2015-16 school year.
