The Robotics Team
Robotics program is being offered as an after school enrichment program. Participating students will discover the valuable role played by robots in our society. More importantly, they will develop critical thinking, problem-solving and cooperative learning strategies, while gaining firsthand experience in the application of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts.
Activities may lead to participation in a Hawaii First-LEGO League qualifying tournament to be held in November, and the State Championship tournament scheduled for December 11th. These events are held Saturdays at various locations.
Participation in the Science Club - Robotics program is limited to fifth and sixth grade students.
Components of the Science Club - Robotics program include research, construction of robots, schematic drawings, programming, problem-solving, and public presentation of research.
What is a First LEGO League Tournament?
An FLL Tournament is an opportunity to demonstrate the skills and knowledge you have gained as part of our robotics program. This daylong event features teams from various schools and community groups as they explore the cutting edge world of Biomedical Engineering to discover innovative ways to repair injuries, overcome genetic predispositions, and maximize the body’s potential, with the intended purpose of leading happier and healthier lives in “Body Forward.”
The competition features two distinct events:
- The Project – Presentation of research and a proposed solution to a real-world problem related to some aspect of biomedical engineering.
- The Game – A series of mini-tasks to be completed through the students’ design, construction and programming of a robot. Each team has just 2 ½ minutes to complete as many tasks as possible.
Winning teams from qualifying tournaments become eligible to participate in the Hawaii Regional FLL Championship, to be held on December 11, 2010 in the Neal Blaisdell Center.
Registration fees for RoboEaglez Teams have been subsidized through grants received from the Hawaii Robotics Organizing Committee (ROC).
