  • FLL FIRST LEGO LEAGUE

    The Aspen Middle School Teams are an in-school program for 5th through 8th graders who  compete in at least one local competition. Students interested in programming and robotics, research and problem-solving and who are also passionate about working as a team should apply. Applications are due to Jayson Thomas (Assistant Principal) or Karen Price (Front Office) by June 1.

     

    FIRST LEGO League is a program designed “to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders." FIRST LEGO League competitions have a theme, and the topic for 2019 is City Shaper What if you could build a better world? Where would you begin?

    More than ever, we must come together to innovate and solve problems. In FIRST, you are part of a thriving community brimming with inspiration, creativity, and hope for a stronger, more sustainable future—one that’s built better together. You have the power to help the cities, towns, and places you call home reach new heights. With the support of the FIRST community, this is your opportunity to lead our future forward—and up.

     

    FLL competitions involve three components—a robot competition, engineering design, and a research presentation. The robot competition involves student teams designing, building and programming a robot to score points by moving a variety of objects on a 4’x8’ play surface. In a judged interview, students explain the engineering of their robot. The research project aligns with the theme, and presentations should be smart, creative and polished. In class we will spend much of our time working on the research project and honing programming skills on the board. Judges also assess a team’s understanding of FLL Core Values, including their understanding of Gracious Professionalism.

     

    Being a member of the AMS Robotics team is a commitment of time. Those applying for a limited spot on a team should make careful note of the dates and times listed before applying.  Students are expected to spend some after-school and some weekend hours preparing to be competitive.
