QuickStrike FIRST LEGO LEAGUE

FIRST Lego League

Our FIRST Lego League team participates in the FLL competition that are built to help introduce students that are in the begging stages of learning robotics. The program utilizes the amazing and useful building blocks we all know from when we were kids, LEGO!

Students and mentors are faced with a fun and exciting challenge that implements real world problems and helps the young minds of tomorrow to begin to think of solutions to these problems.

The program begins in September and runs through till the end of December, culminating in a competition that brings all of the teams together to show off their map and how they chose to face the problem.

Inaugural Season

In our first season our team was able to utilize the help of our FIRST team, and gain valuable knowledge and work from team QuickStrike our highschool team. The studenst were able to build and succesfully complete the FIRST Orbit challenge! All of our students had fun and were able to learn aspects of programming, Building and Problem solving!

Next season will begin in Sept. 2019! Looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

The Engine

Meet the 2019 Engine, this is what makes everything go round! Using Lego to complete in these competition allows the students the opportunity to leanr the basics and creativity needed to get involved in the fields of manufactruing and designing.

Without these adaptable parts it woul dbe much harder to allow for creativity and development of these skills.

Mentoring

Team QuickStrike 6978's mentors played a huge part in the success of our rookie Lego League team.

With our highschool students dedicating time there were able to help and teach our younger students the prinipals that are key in learning and having success in robotics.

In the picture to the right we can see Claire and Dante, two of team Quickstrike's senior members helping to make sure our Lego students were ready for their competition that took place in December of 2018.

Thank you team 6978!
