This is Kennedy's fourth year to host Lego League. We have had 13 teams the past two years, five state qualifiers and a variety of awards.
The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
Robot GameDuring the Robot-Game your team will:
- Identify Missions to solve.
- Design, build and program a LEGO Robot to complete the Missions.
- Test and refi ne your program and design.
Your Robot will have to navigate, capture, transport, activate, or deliver objects. You and your Robot will only have 2½ minutes to complete as any Missions as possible. So, be creative!
Challenge DescriptionArchitects design and construct buildings. They combine science and art to make buildings and structures for their clients. Sometimes they make new buildings and sometimes they redesign old ones. They work as part of a larger team, just like yours. Structural, civil and environmental engineers make sure a project suits its site. Construction workers like electricians, plumbers and carpenters, and project managers make sure the job stays on time and within budget. Every role is important to get the job done.Our cities and towns face big issues, like transportation, accessibility and even natural disasters. How can we shape a better future for everyone? It will take teamwork and imagination. Are you ready to build a better tomorrow together?
Research ProjectIn the Innovation Project, your team will:
- Identify a problem with a building or public space in your community.
- Design a solution.
- Share your solution with others and then refine it.
At official events, your team will present your Project, including the problem, your solution, and how you shared it, in a 5-minute presentation.
