Grand Forks Public partners with the Greater Grand Forks Robotics Club to bring further education and practice to children of the community.
Greater Grand Forks Robotics Club
The Greater Grand Forks Robotics Club (GGFRC) was formed in partnership with the Grand Forks Public Library, the University of North Dakota Computer Science Dept., and the Dakota Science Center. It is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization focused on S.T.E.M. exposure to students of all ages in the Greater Grand Forks area. The club strives to offer this at no cost to students. There are currently two group components.
FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge and FIRST® LEGO® League Explore
The FLL® Challenge (ages 9 to 14 years old) and FLL® Explore (ages 6 to 10 years old) season runs from late August to early February. It is highly structured, and requires each team to build, test, and program an autonomous robot to solve a set of missions as well as research, develop, and share innovative solutions unique to the season's theme. If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Robotics Club meets during the FLL® offseason, and focuses on teaching how to program robots. It is open to all ages.
