For the 2021-2022 Robotics Season... the MJS Robotics team will be meeting in-person after school in the MJS Makerspace. The robotics season started in October of 2021 and is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students! The Robotics team meeting schedule will be posted to the calendar below, and the team's google classroom page above. For more info, please contact the coaches.

About the Team - The MJS Robotics Team consists of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who compete annually in Lego's First Robotics League. Students will have mandatory practice every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from September to Early December. The Robotics team is a great opportunity for students who enjoy working with their hands, problem solving, computer programming, teamwork, research, and collaboration. Along with building and programming a robot that will compete against other schools, the team is also responsible for developing a research project and creating an engineering notebook. Both of these items are to be presented to judges at time of competition. For more information, check out the official First Lego League website and youtube channel.

It's not just about building robots...

A robotics tournament and team is an opportunity that challenges students just like you to solve real-world problems using robots! The MJS Robotics team focuses on global topics that are influencing society worldwide while learning about computer science and manufacturing processes. Students work collaboratively to create challenges for programing a robot designed and manufactured by students to interact, compete, and grow throughout our season. Starting in the fall, the season spans the school year and follows the guidelines of international robotics tournaments such as FIRST, VEX, and more.
