Each year, a group of students in Grade 5 & 6 are given the opportunity to participate in a robotics program as part of our work with the Wyndham Network of schools. This program enables students to learn valuable skills in teamwork, project planning, time management, coding and robot design, culminating in their participation at the First Lego League robotics competition.
There are four sections to the competition that the team is judged on:
- robot design,
- completion of a project on a given topic,
- demonstration of the Lego League values, and
- completion of a number of activities requiring coding skills using the robot and lego models.
