What We Do

FIRST LEGO League

This fall, our students took part in FIRST LEGO League, an international competition that has students research and explore a scientific and real-world challenge. This year’s theme, “Into Orbit,” had students investigate the challenges humans face in exploring space. For the project’s robotics challenge, students designed and programmed a robot to complete missions related to the year’s theme.

RPi Weather Station

This spring we will be constructing Raspberry Pi Weather Stations, customizable weather stations that allow students to collect weather data using a variety of sensors that are all connected to a Raspberry Pi. They can be custom designed to measure anything from temperature to air quality. The project challenges students as they work to plan, construct, program, test, and install the weather station. Once installed and functioning, students can then work to design an interface so that the data can be displayed online and shared with the public.

LEGO Obstacle Courses

This is our upcoming, student-inspired project in which participants will be working in small teams to design and program an EV3 robot to navigate a series of obstacle courses. These obstacle courses will test the students in their design prowess and programming skills as we continue to practice our robotics.

When we allow children to experiment, take risks, and play with their own ideas, we give them permission to trust themselves. They begin to see themselves as learners who have good ideas and can transform their own ideas into reality.
