AFTER SCHOOL CLUB
The After School Club is part of the PS128 Media Center. It started in 2013 to mainly focus on Robotics, Creative writing and coding. We meet once per week from 3pm to 6pm.
For 3 consecutive years, PS128 Robotic Team “the Lego Masters” from The Media Center’s After School Club, have been participating in the yearly First Lego League (FLL), Robotic Competitions where the team have demonstrated team work, core values and dedication. On December 10th 2017 the team participated in the first qualifier, which took place at the Xavarian High School in Brooklyn, NY. This year’s challenge theme was on “Hydrodynamics”.
For more information about the event, location and other please download FLL Xaverian Qualifier Team Info Packet 12.10.17.pdf
Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8**) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field. To learn more about FLL please visit FLL website.
