First Lego League Explore & Challenge

Robotics is an excellent way to stimulate creativity and a curious mind! Students in this club will work with programmable smart hubs, motors, sensors, and various LEGO® bricks to build and program models such as helicopters, trucks, gorillas, frogs, dolphins, caterpillars, and more. This exciting course offers hands-on activities that ignite students’ curiosity while enhancing their skills in science, technology, engineering, and coding. The 5th-grade team will participate in FLL Challenge which is a competition-based club that requires after-school participation as well as weekend practice on Saturdays.

Junior Robotics

Junior Robotics aims to ignite students' passion for robotics, cultivate their STEM skills, and nurture their creativity and problem-solving abilities. By engaging in hands-on robotics projects, students develop important 21st-century skills that will benefit them academically and personally.

The club provides a supportive and collaborative environment where students can explore their creativity and develop their STEM skills. They learn how to design and build robots that can navigate obstacles, complete specific tasks, or participate in friendly competitions. Students also gain experience in programming their robots using block-based coding or text-based languages, enabling them to control the robot's movements and responses.

Math Olympiad

Through the Math Olympiad, interested students will gain additional knowledge, problem-solve, and sharpen their skills by tackling problems at a high level. Students will analyze their performance at school, city, state, national, and international levels. Additional registration fees may occur based on competition participation. After-school and Saturday practices may be required based on need.

Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is an exciting competitive team that involves innovative STEM content in the areas of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Engineering. We are committed to creating opportunities for student teamwork, problem-solving, and collaboration as well as recognizing outstanding achievement by students.  Additional registration and transportation fees may be required based on Competition participation.


SECME (Science, Engineering, Communication, Mathematics, and Enrichment) is an educational program and organization that promotes and supports STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and

Mathematics) education and opportunities for K-12 students. SECME clubs are typically school-based clubs that participate in SECME activities and competitions.

VEX Robotics

VEX Robotics requires an application process. Teachers look at academic studies and consider being a good citizen a priority of VEX.  The team requires dedication and commitment which makes it a unique opportunity.  Students will work in teams to build, drive and program robots to compete in VEX robotics games. This competition team focuses on innovation, teamwork, and collaborative learning. Teams will work after school from 3:00 until 5:00 twice a week on assigned days and every Saturday they are not competing from 8:00 am-2:00 pm. Each team will compete in at least 6 regular season competitions, which will require travel to other schools or cities. Parents are encouraged to travel to competitions with us. However, when students need to travel with the school, there will be a $30 transportation fee for each student. There is a $350 fee for students, which covers registrations, competitions up to State Regional Championships, materials, and all practices/meetings. 

Introduce your child or further their curiosity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)! Students in this club will be introduced to the building and programming of robots. They will build models and then use an easy programming environment to bring them to LIFE. This course emphasizes active, hands-on, and collaborative learning where children engage in playful learning, cultivate their curiosity for the technological world, explore problem-solving, and understand concepts such as sequencing, cause-and-effect, programming, sensors, and motors.

Odyssey of the Mind

Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program whose mission is to develop creative thinking skills in students from kindergarten through college. Students develop creative-thinking skills in a team environment that can be transferred to real-life situations. Teams from almost every U.S. state and more than 20 other countries participate in the program. It is open to each and every student who would like to participate. Teams are made up of 5-7 students and are coached, usually, by a parent volunteer. Problems range from technical in nature, artistic, and performance-based to structure. There are five different problems to choose from each year and teams are divided by age and grade. NASA is a sponsor of Odyssey of the Mind and Microsoft has become involved in Odyssey of the Mind.
