Busy Programming their EV3 robots
Girls are excellent programmers!!!!
Every year, FIRST LEGO League releases a Challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic. Each Challenge has three parts: The Robot Game, the Project, and the Core Values. A team of up to ten children participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (RobotCHALLENGE®Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FIRST LEGO League Core Values.
Practicing their Team Building skills!
This yearʻs theme is Hydro Dynamics. This year’s Project challenge is to improve the way people find, transport, use, or dispose of water. By designing Challenges around such topics, participants are exposed to potential career paths within a chosen Challenge topic, in addition to solidifying the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles that naturally come from participating in the program. Team members also learn valuable life and employment skills which will benefit them no matter which career path they choose. Students from all across the nation are participating in these challenges. The official challenge was released on August 30th through the First LEGO League (FLL). The competition will be held on November 11, 2017 at the Kamehameha High School Campus.
We wish our FIRST LEGO League best of luck!
