The Robotics Club is back!

It has been a while since the KIS Robotics Club (KRC) won the regionals and represented our school at the all-India FLL competition.

Moreover, this semester, the KRC is back!


Ms. Shalini Ambrose and Mr. Audric-Jai Cauvet will guide the Club, and I will be the Club Mentor.

This year, the KRC plans to have junior and senior teams representing our school at the prestigious First Lego League (FLL) robotics competition.

FLL teams research a real-world problem and are challenged to develop a solution. The teams will build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORM technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. All teams must operate under the FIRST LEGO League signature Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism.

The Junior FLL, for ages 6 to 9, has an Aqua Adventure theme that involves finding out where the water we use in daily life comes from, and what happens on its way to us. The senior FLL, for ages 9 to 16, has the theme of Hydro Dynamics, or learning all about water as a resource – how we find, transport, use, and dispose of it.
