SCSD Robotics Clubs find success

SCSD Robot awrd The City of St. Charles School District is proud to offer a variety of robotics/STEM opportunities for our students. Once such opportunity is the FIRST Robotics teams at some of our schools. Teams from Jefferson Intermediate, Blackhurst Elementary, and Null Elementary recently competed in the FIRST Lego League competitions. FIRST Robotics is an international organization that fosters students to become science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, inspire innovation, and foster self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
 
On November 9th, Jefferson Intermediate Students participated in an area wide FIRST Lego League Robotics competition at Brittany Woods Middle School in University City.  The students had a strong showing and proved to develop strong improvisational and collaborative skills throughout the process of preparing and participating in the competition. They represented Jefferson incredibly well and will compete again in the spring.   
 
Blackhurst Elementary’s 4th Grade FIRST Lego LeagueRobotics Team competed on November 23rd in a qualifier tournament at Christian High School. The Bobcat Builders presented an innovative solution to a real-world problem, coded a robot to complete Lego Built missions, and showed amazing teamwork. We are so proud of their accomplishments this season. Go Bobcats!  
 
The Null Elementary FLL Team "Le Gos" participated in the City Shaper Qualifier event on November 17th at Wentzville Middle School. The team worked together to prepare for the event by:  creating a project to solve a problem in our community, programming our robot to complete missions and creating a presentation to share with judges about how we live the Core Values. The team did very well in all judging categories, but more importantly the students learned a lot about working together and solving problems.
