There definitely will be a Bearbotics FRC team (#4068, for high school students only) and multiple FTC teams (also for high school students only) this year. We are currently collecting potential interest in a FTC team for LPMS, and FLL team(s) for LPMS and one or more elementary schools; we will do our best to make arrangements with D38 for one of more of these teams, but unfortunately cannot promise anything at this time. We're planning an in-depth information session about this opportunity -- especially for teachers and parents -- on August 13th; click here for more info.
Bearbotics robotics programs offer a good range of opportunities for student learning and growth, with different levels of challenge, difficulty and expectations. To explain the differences between these robotics programs, please consider this table:
Hours/Year: Hours per school year that a student leader on the team is likely to spend on team meetings and activities
Away Days/Year: Days per school year that a student leader on the team is likely to spend out-of-town on team competitions and events. Includes weekend days and travel.
Away School Days/Year: School days per school year that a student leader on the team is likely to spend out-of-town on team competitions and events. Students must stay on top of homework and tests that happen on these days.
