Basic Robotics

District Robotics Showcase
Thanks to a generous donation from Alcoa and the Scott County Regional Authority, we will be using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots for Basic Robotics.
Basic Robotics is open to 5th and 6th graders.

Students will construct a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot and learn simple programming.

The 8-week session begins in September and will culminate with the District Robotics Showcase during which Basic Robotics students from each elementary school will present a final project.  Specific dates for Basic Robotics are located under the "Robotics Schedule" tab at the top of the page.
