Student-led project

Bulldog Bots

We need supplies to assist us in presenting our Core Values and our Project. To create the most eye catching displays, my students need items such as tri-fold boards, sharpies, and markers.

About My Students

The Bulldog Bots is a FIRST Lego League team comprised of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Our school is a rural middle school and is Title-1. This team is very ambitious, dedicated, and incredibly talented.

This is our third year competing at the middle school level and we are here to win! We have competed very well at the Regional and Super Regional Competitions, but have not yet reached State. Our goal is to make it to the State Competition this season!

Through the First Lego League Challenge, my students develop skills to prepare them for college and a future in STEM careers. Students not only learn how to program robots to navigate a challenging course, but they learn to engineer a prototype of something that they create to solve a problem. They also focus on establishing core values, such as coopertition and gracious professionalism. Students work together and support one another throughout the season and during competition. They are required to present their project to a broad audience, not just the judges, which allows them to develop effective communication skills.

In Their Own Words

"Our main goal is to do an awesome job in presenting our project and our robot design and make it to State and win! We want to make them take notice of our hard work and to take us seriously. We work very hard and we would like everyone to see that". Jerry

"I will work with the younger kids on the team to make sure they know what is expected and how to make everything look awesome since this is my last year. Everyone has their specific jobs and the older kids work hard to help the younger ones to feel comfortable and make sure they know how to do everything." Chloe

"It is important to us because we want to be the first team in our county to make it to State. It will help to get other people interested in our robotics program. The challenge will be involving space this year, but it has not been released yet.We can't wait to see what it is and get started working on a solution!" Ella
