Alcova has 3 First Lego League Cybird Robotics Teams:
- K/1 Discover Team
- 2/3 Explore Team
- 4/5 Challenge Team
Friendly competition is at the heart of our challenges, as teams of students engage in research, problem-solving, coding and engineering – building and programming LEGO robots that navigate the missions of a robot game. As part of our challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.
The challenge team will attend a Regional Competition in December with the hopes of advancing to Super Regionals in January.
The discover and explore teams will showcase their skills at a festival in March.
