Robot Champion

Ages 9 & Up

Students who are in the Robot Champion class will be challenged by using advance robot coding using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3. Students will learn the basic foundation to use tools, wheels, gears, and motors to design and build their own robot and program the software. Each session will add new challenging and more advanced building and programming techniques, which will be used for FLL Robotics Tournament & WRO Robotics Tournament.

– Planning, research, troubleshooting robot challenges or tasks including movement, sensors, etc.
– Advanced robotics building and construction using programming and computer science.
– Develop math and physics skills using hands on robots experiments by hand-on building and designing robots.
