FIRST Lego League Robotics
FIRST Lego League Robotics inspires students to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. The program is offered to Grade 5 & 6 students each year from October to February. A final competition is held at SAIT.
From January until March Grades 3 - 6 students view and participate in science demonstrations and receive guidance on using the lessons and applying the scientific method to their projects. Projects and experiments are done at home and students share their work with the Science Club each week as their projects progress. Students present and demonstrate their projects at the Westgate School Science Fair held mid March each year.
