Text Box: Robotics (8th Grade)

In this course, 8th grade students research a real-world engineering challenge, develop a solution, and compete with LEGO-based robots of their own design.


With adult coaches to help them, FIRST®LEGO® League teams (up to 10 members) apply science engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.


2015 TRASH TREK Challenge


We’re not talking trash-we’re cleaning it up!

In the 2015 FIRST® LEGO League TRASH TREK Challenge, more than 233,000 children ages 9 to 16* from over 80 countries will explore the fascinating world of trash. From collection, to sorting, to smart production and reuse, there is more to your trash than meets the eye. Join FIRST LEGO League teams on a Trash Trek to discover the hidden (or not so hidden) world of trash!
