We are proud to announce we have started a PS LEGO Robotics Club at DPS. The purpose of having a LEGO Robotics program as well as other STEAM-related topics at the primary level is to allow for our young learners to have an opportunity to grow as leaders in technology. The program will help foster student achievement with meaningful play experiences using a familiar toy (LEGOS) which are brought to life through coding. It will also give our students the opportunity to learn about coding, innovation, collaboration, critical thinking, leadership and foster a desire to continue learning and growing in this important 21st century field. This program will be the first step in getting our youngest learners interested in, and ready for the next level at EBH LEGO Robotics Club.
We are registered with FIRST LEGO League Jr. as part of the club and this gives early learners and their coaches the opportunity to work and create together while they explore science and technology concepts. With each season they are challenged to research a real-world problem, then create a show me poster and a working LEGO model of what they learned.
We currently have 2 teams and had over 100 students sign up for the club. We could not include all students due to space and support, so we will hold an inhouse robotics expo to allow for an opportunity for all to learn in a fun hands on event.
