Robotics

Discovery 4-H Club is enthusiastic about robotics!

We have two robotics teams:

Junior FIRST LEGO League


Ages 5-9
Up to 5 teammates on each team
Season runs December through March
Enrollment fee varies by sponsorships, fundraising, and needs. Our 2016 teammates each paid $75 for the season.

It’s never too early to discover STEM. FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO.

FIRST LEGO League

FIRST LEGO League
Ages 9-14
Up to 10 teammates on each team
Season runs September through December (later if team advances in competition)
Enrollment fee varies by sponsorships, fundraising, and needs. Our 2016 teammates paid no fees, but did contribute to a pizza fund.

What is FIRST LEGO League?

Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS, then compete on a table-top playing field.
