Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators. If your child would like to try this team sport at BHE, we have an opportunity! We want to create the first BHE teams that will participate in the Wonder League Robotics Competition. Students will develop problem solving and creativity skills, learn about issues facing the world around them, and build meaningful relationships with their peers. Over the course of 2 months, children in teams of 4 will design solutions to real-world science and technology challenges by programming and building extensions for their Dash & Dot robots.
We will create 2 teams of ages 6-8 and 3 teams of ages 9-12. There will be 4 students on a team for a total of 20 students. Because of limited availability for this round of competition, teams will be created by random draw from all returned entry forms in each age bracket. Teams will meet on Wednesday mornings from 7:00-7:45 AM in the makerspace room in the library.
Entry forms are due by 3 p.m., Friday, September 23rd. Students will be notified if their name was drawn for a team on Monday, September 26th. Teams will begin meeting on Wednesday, October 5th. If more than two meetings are missed, an alternate team member will be selected.
We hope to provide more opportunities for more students such as this, so stay tuned! For more information about this competition, go to www.makewonder.com/competition
