NRP Robotics Team going to Europe & April Registrations

FLL Team Going to Europe!

Our Norma Rose Point School Robotics Team “Forces of Atlantis” won 1st place Champions Award at the FIRST LEGO League BC Lower Mainland Tournament in December 2017. They also won the Gracious Professionalism award at the Championships in February 2018. Because of this achievement they were invited to represent Canada among 100 teams from all around the world at the FIRST LEGO League Open International in Tallinn, Estonia this June 2018.

FIRST LEGO League BC Regional Championship Tournament News – Both our Teams in the top 10!

We took two teams, the Ballistic Parrots from University Hill Elementary and Mr. Noodles from Lord Kitchener Elementary and Ecole Jules Quesnel,  to the FIRST LEGO League BC Regional Championship Tournament in Victoria, BC, on February 4th, 2017. Both teams did incredibly well and we all had an amazing time at the tournament. 29 teams in total representing schools from across the province were there. The teams presented research projects on solutions for animals in danger from human intervention, and participated in tournament robot races. Mr. Noodles came in 4th place and Ballistic Parrots in 9th, so both in the top 10! Our coach, Barish Golland, won the Coach/Mentor award for outstanding work coaching the UHill LEGO Robotics Club team and several other schools. We’re super proud of both teams and thank all the parent volunteers who helped make this memorable event happen. For photos check out our Facebook Album!

Instead they are given new and more challenging activities and as they progress in their robotics and programming skills.

youtube_video_1youtube_video_3youtube_video_2

What’s New in 2015?

  • A first in Vancouver! – Partnering with RoboCamp’s amazing online Robotics tutorials so kids can build even better and more awesome robotic  machines and learn about the real ones too!
  • Now at Norma Rose Point School! – We just opened classes for both K-Gr2 (LEGO WeDo) and Gr3-5 (Mindstorms EV3/NXT) at Norma Rose Point on Tuesdays 3:15-5pm – there are still spots available so register here!
  • We’re helping teachers bring LEGO Education to the classroom – We’re excited to be volunteering with UHill Elementary teachers to bring LearnToLearn and StoryStarter kits right into the classroom, helping kids learn cross-curricular and literacy skills in a fun, hands-on way.
  • BotCamp – coming up this March spring break, we’re opening up two weeks of Robotics morning sessions at University Chapel, UBC. Kids can build and program even bigger, more complex Robotics machines not seen in our afternoon programs thanks to our full fleet of Expansion Set kits.  Here’s a video sneak peek from last year!

From all of us at Daedalos Academy, we wish you and your kids a creative, fun, mind-stimulating New Year in 2015!robocampNorma-Rose_1
