2022-2023 FLL Challenge
It’s full speed ahead for the 2022-2023 Robotics Challenge: SUPERPOWERED!
This year, teams are exploring where energy comes from and how it is distributed, stored, and used and then putting their superpowered creativity to work to innovate for a better energy future. Teams are investigating the essential role energy plays in keeping our world running in the three elements of the 2022-23 SUPERPOWERED Challenge by:
1. Designing, building and programming an autonomous robot to score points in the Robot Game
2. Creating an innovative solution to the challenge of ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.
3. Demonstrating FLL core values by helping each other, sharing ideas with others and embracing the spirit of friendly competition.
Students in Grades 4-8 can extend their learning in robotics by participating in the annual international FLL competition. Each year, FLL presents students with real-world situations and challenges in which they develop their abilities to think critically, apply knowledge at high levels and use technology to access, evaluate and communicate information. Students on robotics teams are afforded unique experiences involving collaborative engineering, programming, problem-solving, and research.
The FLL season starts in August with a two-week Preview Class to give students the opportunity to experience the teamwork it takes to address the robotics missions and innovation project and prepare for competition in December. Teams for the full competition season are organized from the FLL PREVIEW CLASS participants. Team membership requires enthusiasm, focus and persistence in problem-solving, willingness to learn and work with others on team goals, and commitment. Teams will meet weekly throughout the season. Optional extra sessions may be offered.
The 2022-23 FLL Robotics teams will be led by CFSD STEM Integration Specialists Charlotte Ackerman (SD), and Noah Mickey-Coleman (VV), in partnership with teachers, high school mentors, parents and community members.
