Moore County Schools offers several opportunities for students to use robotics at every elementary school. Students in K-2 learn programming using the Dash robot, Lego WeDo and Bee-Bots. Our students in grades 3-5 use the Lego EV3, Sphero and drones in the classroom and through after school clubs. Robotics within our district has grown so much that many elementary schools must offer an application process for students to be a member of a robotic team.
Middle School Robotics
Our middle school students have the opportunity to participate in the district middle school competition, First Lego League (FLL) competitions or First Tech Challenge (FTC) competitions. Robotics is offered through classroom instruction or through afterschool programs.
High School Robotics
Because of the tremendous demand for robotics in the lower grades, we have expanded robotics at the secondary level. Every high school in the district participates in the First Tech Challenge (FTC) competition. Students have the opportunity to build and program a robot for a competitive team.
