Each year, Templeton Middle School, with the help of Charger Robotics Team 537, runs a FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) program for students in grades 6-8. This activity introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges with familiar LEGO®-based robots. Charger Robotics supplies members to be voluntary mentors for the kids to help them in building, programming, team-building, and competition. The members help the students design and program robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology. The students learn critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork skills that they will take with them to Charger Robotics Team 537 and their future.
