Prospective Team member and Parents, It is time to start the Lego Robotics team at Sterling Park for the 2015-2016 school year! The Lego Robotics Team is open to 4th and 5th Grade students at Sterling Park. 


FIRST LEGO League is an international engineering competition sponsored by the non-profit organization FIRST, For Inspiration in Research and Technology. Teams of up to ten compete in tournaments worldwide, designing and programming an EV3 Mindstorms robot to manipulate LEGO models on a 4'x8' map, and creating an innovative solution to a real world problem. There will be two teams from Sterling Park this year. The theme for 2015-2016 is "Trash Trek" and it is all about learning about what happens to items when you throw them away. Your team will research what happens to an item of your choosing once you throw it away and try to come up with a better solution for what to do with it.

 

Team practices will be held after school on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30PM-4:30PM and at least two competitions will be held on weekends. If selected for the team you will be expected to be at the practices. If you are in other activities that meet on those days please do not apply.

As a reminder, even though this team is usually referred to as Lego Robotics, the actual robot part of the competition only encompasses one third of our score at the tournament. One third of our score will be the project described above and the last third will be scored based on our “Gracious Professionalism” or how well we work together as a team, and how well we interact with other teams at the tournament.

Applications must be returned to your teacher by Thursday, September 10.

The applications will be reviewed by the coaches after school on September 10 and the teams will be announced on Friday, September 11 on the Eagle Eye News.

Please click here to download an application. You may also get a copy of the application in class from your teacher.

What is a Pull Tab?


   Pull tabs are the small tabs from all kinds of cans!



How do Pull Tabs help the Ronald McDonald House?

Once the Pull Tabs are collected, they are taken to be recycled in exchange for dollars, which support the children and families that are served at the Houses.  Since 1996, the RMHCCF Pull Tabs program has collected over 197 tons of pull tabs and raised over $210,000 to benefit the children and families staying at the two Ronald McDonald House locations in Orlando.


Saving Pull Tabs is good for the Ronald McDonald House families, local schools, and our environment.  We can all do a little to make a BIG difference in our community!!!




Excercise Your Mind During the Summer

Parents: If students laze away the days of summer without using their minds, they can lose up to a month of learning — especially in reading and math. Stem the summer slide and keep your child engaged with these fun, brain-friendly activities.
