Jr. First LEGO League - This program is also a part of First Lego League, but is not competitive. Students in 1st through 3rd grades (may include 4th graders) learn teamwork, engineering and research skills. The season culminates at an OMSI Expo similar to a science fair. Each team presents its work and is given feedback from local experts. Every team is a winner.
Sumo Wrestling LEGO Club - Students at all levels in 3rd through 6th grades work together to build and program robots that compete with each other to push the other robot out of the ring. It is a fun program with an emphasis on learning skills in a play based atmosphere. This club is unique to Farmington View and is open to any student interested in learning more about programming. Space is limited and parent volunteers will be needed.
