Leopard Robotics will be having two to three FIRST® LEGO® League teams for the 2018-2019 season, which runs from August through December. This robotics program is designed to get children excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Teams design, build and program an autonomous robot (using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot set) to score points on a 4x8 foot playing surface. This year’s challenge also encompasses a student research project around the theme “Into Orbit”.

Open to all 6th-8th grade students. We will have multiple teams if we get enough coaches, and there will be 5-8 students on each team. Each team will need to have two coaches, and the coaches do not need to know programming.
Area students who do not attend Lake Middle School yet do not currently have a similarly offered activity at their school may apply for this program.
Team meeting day/time/frequency will be dependent on coach arrangement. Student must be available for the competition.
We will meet at Lake Middle School or other location as determined by coach.
$90 registration fee. Covers the cost of registering the teams with First Lego League and High Tech Kids as well as the set up kit.
