Milwaukee Montessori School Robotics Club and Team students exhibit an increased capability of problem-solving development, through the integration of robots in the solution.
Robotics Club members learn and experiment with gears, drive trains, and the LEGO NXT robot learning to design, construct, and program the robot to complete missions in groups of two. Many obstacle courses are completed with the advanced programming skills.
These are great teamwork building activities enriched with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
Last year, the MMS Robotics Team once again competed in the FIRST LEGO League Regional Tournament at Marquette University High School. Their coach, Mrs. Cieszynski, won the inaugural Outstanding FIRST LEGO League Coach Award. Click here to read the full story.

The First Lego League uses NXT LEGO computer programmed robots to creatively integrate Science, Math, Technology, and Engineering. Students provide solutions for the assigned puzzles judged for project presentation, research, robot design, and robot programming. Students involved within the Robotics team and club have exhibited an increased capability of problem-solving development. The Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary and Junior High Robotics Clubs begin with a series of activities to prepare them for the complexity of the LEGO NXT robot.
