MakerState is offering schools and parents the opportunity to start their very own Robotics team in their hometowns. Students will be placed into teams of varying sizes where they will build robots to compete in challenges!
Through these challenges, students will be using robotics and AI to solve the world’s problems whether it be meteors falling out of the sky, garbage piled up burning the world, or anything else.
FIRST, through these robot competitions, teaches the following values to students all around the world:
Using Lego Robotics, students explore real-world problems like resources, energy & recycling in order to create world-saving innovations!
For budding young scientists, the team learns to explore wonders of science & technology using LEGO WeDo 2.0. They will design show-me posters of their solutions at the season’s end.
Using Lego Robotics, teams will design robots to complete a series of missions within 2.5 minutes to win the game! In addition to the following, students work together to solve one of the world’s problems, which they will later be showcased and judged
Students will design Lego Mindstorm robots to complete a series of timed missions. In addition, Students must solve the given innovation project by using posters, technology designs, and team presentations while documenting in their engineering notebooks.
Kids from 7th-12th grade will build a robot (up to 15 team members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Students will learn the importance of teamwork, safety, gracious professionalism, and creativity.
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Every year teams of high school students come together for 6 weeks to build a 125lb robot with the help of mentors and coaches.
Students will design, prototype, build and code a robot to do designated tasks. Along the way, students will learn how to CAD and CAM, use power tools, and different programming languages. Students will learn the importance of teamwork, safety, gracious professionalism, and creativity.
