Apply to join our very first Bow Elementary Robotics Team!

The Bow School District has been awarded a NHDOE-SSAE Grant to expand its Robotics program throughout the district!  

BES will be starting 3 new teams!  In the 2017 - 2018 school year we will be meeting on a regular basis to become familiar with all sorts of robotic programs and robots, learning the general principles of coding, problem solving and teamwork.  2018-2019 will be our first competitive season.    

We are hoping to form a total of 3 teams.  One team will be students in Grades 1-3 for the FLL Jr.  Team that works with the Lego WeDo 2.0 Resources.  The second 2 teams, for the FLL Teams, will be students who are in grades 3 & 4 this school year or ages 9 - 14 in the 2018 - 2019 competitive season.  FLL  Teams work with the Lego Mindstorm EV3 Resources.  There are two additional FLL Teams teams at BMS for students grade 6-8.  BHS will have several VEX teams.  

Applicants will be chosen based on their interest in creating, inventing and eagerness to learn robotics.  Experience is not necessary but we are interested in hearing if you have played around with robots/coding in the past.  Are you good at working as a team member and learning new roles?  Are you responsible and can other team members count on you to complete your assignments, listen and work with all team member ideas, are you a good listener when being taught something new and how are you at problem solving?  

If you have an interest in joining the team please complete the application which can be found on your Google Drive Shared with Me Folder.  Make your own copy, complete and then share back with Mrs. O'Brien.  It is okay to get parent help in completing the application.
