School Program

Robotics

Once again in the 2018-2019 school year LDVA will be expanding our robotics program. This year the grade 4 students will be entering the “Junior Space Mission” and the 6th graders will be entering the “Senior Mission” with Robotique FIRST Quebec.

Every year, FIRST LEGO League releases a challenge, which is based on a real-world scientific topic.

Each challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Project, and the Core Values. Teams participate in the challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FIRST Core Values. Teams then have the opportunity to attend an official tournament, hosted by our FIRST LEGO League Partner.

INTO ORBIT CHALLENGE

Join our mission into the 30th season of FIRST! Prepare for blast off, break out of your earthly constraints and go into orbit. The 2018/2019 FIRST LEGO League season will transport your team into space, where you’ll explore, challenge, and innovate in the vast expanse of space.

FIRST LEGO League challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. During the INTO ORBIT season, teams will choose and solve a real-world problem in the Project. They will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under the FIRST signature set of Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.
