Lausanne Middle School started participating in the First Lego League Challenge Competitions in 2018. We currently have two teams (Lynx Gold and Lynx Blue) consisting of 10 students each. First Lego League Challenge is for students in grades 5-8.
The goal of our team is to work together to build and code a Lego robot to accomplish a series of tasks. As we work towards local competitions, we prepare on several levels. Students prepare a board/presentation about the ways they incorporate the Core Values into daily practices, build the competition field, build a robot with add-on functions, code the robot and engage in teamwork activities.
Students meet twice a week for a total of three hours. Early local competitions begin in December with a Championship event at the University of Memphis.
