GSMW Robotics: The Challenge, The Competitions, The Teams


2017 GSMW Robotics Logo

Thanks to the amazing grant funding that we received, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming has been able to support 23 FIRST® LEGO League and FIRST LEGO League Jr teams.

Over 160 Girl Scouts and 46 Coaches from Montana and Wyoming are taking part in this wonderful STEM skill-building program!

Check out details below about our teams and the work they are doing.

THE CHALLENGES

The FIRST LEGO League Challenge this year is to learn all about water by exploring how we use water at home or in our communities and designing a solution to improve a part of the journey.

LEGO League Jr teams (Grades K-4) - AQUA ADVENTURE
Explore how we use water at home or in our communities by discovering the water’s journey and then designing a solution to improve a part of this journey.

LEGO League teams (Grades 4-8) - HYDRO DYNAMICS
Teams will identify a way to improve the way people find, transport, use or even dispose of water and will then design an innovative solution that adds value to society by improving something that already exists, using something that exists in a new way or inventing something totally new.

 

THE COMPETITIONS

Many of our teams will be participating in the MT and WY State Tournaments this winter. If you’re in the Casper or Bozeman areas, make sure to go check out the amazing work these teams are doing! And keep an eye out next Spring as we will be hosting a few GSMW Lego Robotics Expo events around Montana and Wyoming where you can see some of our teams demonstrate their accomplishments with this program.
