Robotics Grades 4 - 12
Robotics is the perfect vehicle to integrate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to develop imaginative, critical, and higher order thinking skills necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It provides a challenging set of problems for students to analyze, then build and program a robot to perform the tasks necessary to solve the problems. The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robotics kit is used to build and program the robot. The students compete at Region 7 in Kilgore, TX at the intermediate (grades 4 and 5), middle school (grades 6 - 8), or high school (grades 9 - 12) levels.
