YOUTH ROBOTICS PROGRAMS
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology
Nova Labs supports several award-winning teams under FIRST (For Inspiration Recognition Science and Technology)
Ages: 5 - 8 years old (PreK to 2nd Grade)
In First Lego League Explore, teams of students focus on the fundamentals of engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn to design, and code, and create unique solutions made with LEGO bricks.
Ages: 9 - 12 years old (3rd Grade to 6th Grade)
In First Lego League Challenge, friendly competition is at the heart of the Challenge. Teams engage in research, problem solving, and engineering building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates through the missions of a robot game.
Ages: 12 - 18 years old (7th Grade to 12th Grade)
In First Tech Challenge, teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Through this program, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and teamwork.
Ages: 14 - 18 years old (9th Grade to 12th Grade)
First Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand", develop teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors.
