robot-clip-art-free-825894The Horace Mann Lego Robotics Club is meeting each Tuesday and Friday from 2:30-4:00 from the beginning of the school year until the Raiders Rumble in early December.

Over the past couple of sessions, the students have been constructing the 10 Lego challenges.  Each challenge can take up to three hours to build!  Additionally, they’ve been learning to program the robot to complete different tasks.

During the robot game portion of the Raiders Rumble, our 4th and 5th graders will independently program the robot to complete various tasks.  Each task earns our team points.  Besides the robot game, we’ll also be working on the research component of the competition.  This year’s question asks students to consider a problem related to water and create a solution.
