NWMS Lego Robotics Club
The Lego Club has been hard at work!
Since we do not have too many club meetings left, if at all possible, please encourage your child to attend each meeting. This is especially important for those who will be participating in the competition on May 2.
Students make a graphic organizer to list ideas for research project.
Programming EV3 Robot
Using the computer to write a program for the robot.
Collaborating with team mates to solve mission challenges
Presentations and Demonstrations
Students listened attentively as Mr. Smith and his son Evan discussed the history and various working parts of their very own Sopwith Camel Lego biplane.
Again Mr. Smith, the Lego Robotics thanks you so much!
Don't Forget to Sign-up!
A list of names will need to be turned in to the competition coordinators so they can plan accordingly.
Please respond by no later than March 31st.
About the Presentation
Teams will prepare a presentation to share their project with several judges during the
competition. During the project judging session, teams will have 5 minutes to present their topic and then the judges have 5 minutes to ask questions about it.
The format of the presentation can include posters, slide shows, models, skits, research materials, demonstrations, etc.
The team has decided to present their research information in the form of a Jeopardy game. Ethan B, Cassie, and Haiden have worked especially hard on creating a script for the game show!
Call for Flight Professionals
As part of the team's research, they are required to reach out to a professional to help with the project. Professionals can be anyone who has knowledge about flight. The team is most interested in learning more about thrust of jet planes as this is their research topic.
Engineers are great resources, but they are not required. Teachers, pilots, university professors, or local businesses may be great people to reach out to.
If you know of anyone who meets this description and will be wiling to come in to speak to the team on a Tuesday or Thursday after school, please have them to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or pass along their information to me.
