2015-16 Robotics Team Application

JW Alvey will be choosing members for the 2015-2016 Alvey Robotic’s Team.
 
Information for the Robotic’s Team will be held on Tuesday, June 2nd at the JW Library at 3:20 PM
 
Interested Students and Parents please plan to attend. 
*Students interested may remain at school during dismissal time and have their parents meet them at the library at 3:20 PM. 


 
Background Information:
The JW Alvey Robotic’s (The Raybots) will begin in early September.   The team’s focus is to prepare for the FLL Robotic’s League Competition.  The FLL is an international organization introducing young people to STEM.  Stem stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

In November, the Alvey Raybots will compete in a regional competition. At the regional competition, a team of 10 students participate in a challenge that has three parts:  a Robot Game, A Research Project Presentation, and A FLL Core Values Challenge. 

In the Robot game the students must build a robot, present their robot design, and program the robot through various missions.  For the Research Project presentation the Team must research and present an innovative solution to a world problem.  For the Core Values challenge, the team must work together in a cooperative team challenge. 

Theme for the 2015 FLL Challenge:  Trash to Treasures
The motto for the 2015 season is that “We’re not talking trash. We’re cleaning it up.”  FLL states that the teams will discover the hidden or not so hidden world of garbage.

Our 2015 Robotic’s Team will consist of 4 fourth grade students and 6 fifth grade students. 
Students will be required to complete an essay/application.

We are also looking for a Parent Coach Volunteer. 
Any questions please email Mrs. Lombardo (5th grade teacher/Robotic’s Coach): lombarjc@pwcs.edu
