Robotics Team

The mission of the Farley Robotics Team is to inspire our young students in science and technology by participating in the Jr. First Lego League (Jr. FLL) and First Lego League (FLL) programs. This student centered program allows students to be actively engaged in science, technology, and engineering. Students become better leaders, learn to communicate, and become better problem solvers.

This Saturday, December 2nd, 2017, our Farley Robotics Teams competed in the Apex Predators Robotics Qualifier at Hampton Cove Elementary. This qualifying tournament was for the 2017 HYDRO DYNAMIC season. Students were judged on robot design, core values, and their research project. Students also built a robot using Lego Mindstorms to compete in the robot round portion of this qualifier. Two of our teams, Dirt Busters and Sludge Cyborgs, received Wild Cards to the Alabama FLL Championship tournament in January. Our Robotics Coach, Mattie Hill was awarded the Apex Qualifier Coach/Mentor Award for the 2017 season.
