Who: 5th graders
When: Mondays through Thursdays after school in the fall.
If your 5th grader loves to design and build things, Westview's Lego League provides an opportunity to work in a team environment to do just that.
Using LEGO bricks and other elements such as sensors, motors, and gears, teams gain hands-on experience in engineering and computer programming principles as they construct and program their unique robot inventions. Teams also present a lesson showing a solution to the challenge.
5th graders will have the chance to:
•Design, build, and program autonomous robots
•Learn teamwork skills
•Research challenges facing today’s scientists
•Compete in tournaments and present your solutions to a panel of judges.
•Build self-confidence, knowledge and life skills.
We practice after school Mondays through Thursdays in the fall. Parents pick up children at 5:00.
Students will participate in a Lego League tournament at school in late November. There is also a regional tournament against other schools in early December.
There is a fee to join Lego League. Our program is guided by Mr. Sullivan. You may email him for questions here.
