Mohave offers 3 levels of Robotics programs for the 2018/19 school year
Beginner class. If you have little or no experience in robotics, this is a great way to learn how to design, build and program. Using EV3 robots and fun competitions, students will learn all the basics.
FIRST LEGO League (FLL). If you know how to build and program LEGO EV3 robots you may join a FLL team of up to 10 students. Teams compete at a regional competition in December. In addition to robotics, teams do research on a project and present to a professional jury. Teamwork, problem solving and persistence are key qualities we are looking for in our students.
VEX IQ. Students with experience in robotics competitions can join the VEX IQ program and be part of a team of 5-6 students to compete in regional tournaments. Competitions take place early 2018 and may be as late as April.
All students meet on Fridays after school from 230-430. Additional meetings for competition teams may be scheduled close to events.
An informational meeting will take place after school on Friday August 17 at 230 in the Media center.
Fees for the programs are as follows:
Beginner class: $60. Classes run until Thanksgiving
FLL teams: $120*. Fees include tournament fee for regional FLL tournament at Mohave and State Championships in case teams qualify. Date for State TBD. FLL teams meet through the first semester
VEX IQ: $180*. Fees include two regional tournaments and registration fee for State Championships if team qualifies.
