TLDSB robotic team qualifies for Ontario Championships!

On December 1, six robotic teams from Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) schools participated in the First Lego League Qualifier Tournament.

The day-long competition is designed to have teams of up to 10 students research real-world programs, to develop a solution using science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM). The teams are also challenged to design, develop, and program a robot to compete on a table-top playing field.

This year’s challenge was a research project called, “Into Orbit”, where teams had to consider a physical or social problem faced by humans in space exploration. They then presented their idea to an expert. Huntsville Public School’s team presented to a Nasa astronaut, who gave them feedback on their strategy.

RHX 37667, a team of Grade 4 o 6 students from Rolling Hills Public School were the tournament champions, qualifying for the Ontario Championship taking place in February, 2019.

Over 10 teams, made up of students from Grades 4 to 8, participated in the the First League Qualifier Tournament, which would not be of been possible without the support of TLDSB and Parry Sound Muskoka Community Network.
