    West Woodland Robotics Programs

    Wildcat Robotics 


    The Wildcat Robotics Team is a select group of fourth and fifth grade students from West Woodland Elementary. We participate in the First Lego League Challenge (FLL) each winter. We select ten members from a list of applicants at the end of each school year to create a team to compete in the fall. Applications are available at the end of May. Notices will go out in the Wildcat Chat and on the school Website when the application link is live and ready for use. Once the application process starts, be prompt as the program does fill up quickly.

    The program is highly competitive and attendance is required for all classes. The FLL Challenge is a three-part competition: Robot Game, the Project, and the Core Values. You may read more about the Challenge and First Lego League by clicking on the links in the text.

    Classes start the first week of school and go for two hours, after school every Tuesday and Thursday. Students applying for the team will need to be available for meetings, starting in late August. The program will continue as long as the team progresses though the qualifying tournaments, starting in December. The tournaments are all day events and held on a Saturday or Sunday.  Once our team is eliminated from a tournament, the members will attend two additional classes: Cleanup/Organize and Party.



    Pre-Robotics 2017

    The Pre-Robotics Program is all about programming and recommended as a precursor to joining our FLL Wildcat Robotics Team. The Program starts in the spring and consist of five classes. Applications are available in April. The classes will run for two hours after school on Tuesdays in May. Pre-Robotics introduces students to the Lego Mindstorms EV3 programming language that we use to control the robots. We will accept up to 16 students in the program. Having Pre-Robotics experience will help students get on the Wildcat Robotics Team, but does not guarantee a spot. The Pre-Robotics Program is open to any student currently in 3rd-5th grade wanting more experience in advanced programming. Although the program is highly recommended as a precursor to the Wildcat Robotics Team, it is not required. Notices will go out in the Wildcat Chat and on the school Website when the application link is live and ready for use. Once the application process starts, be prompt as the program fills up quickly.


    Pre-Robotics 2017 will run every Tuesday in May
    5/2, 5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30
    2:15 - 4:15PM
