Robotics World ChampionshipDear Parents and Students,

A parent informational meeting for the robotics club will be held this coming Saturday, August 20th, 2016 at 10:00 AM at the OSS cafeteria. Attendance is required.

FIRST Lego League - 6th to 8th grades

Fee: $125.00
Teams of up to 10 student members apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a playing field. Along the way, students develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.

FIRST Tech Challenge – 7th – 8th grades
Fee: $150.00
Following a sports model, FIRST® Tech Challenge teams (10+ members) design, build, program, and operate robots of their own design to play a floor game in an alliance format. Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas.

FIRST Robotics Competition 9th – 12th grades
Fee: $225.00
The excitement of sport, the rigors of science. Under strict rules, limited resources, and the guidance of volunteer mentors, teams of 15+ students have just six weeks to build and program robots to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors. They must also raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and perform community outreach.

For more information please attend the meeting this Saturday August 20th beginning at 10am.
