Lego League

 
Lego League is Back in Action!
 
FIRST LEGO League is a program that seeks to inspire students in grades 4-8 to practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. The program involves a project that requires the team to take on a real world challenge and a related robot game, in which the more missions completed, the more points the team earns. This past year, the SCCS Knights team worked on ways to improve human and guinea pig and capybara interaction when the human is away and not able to directly interact with the animal. We're very proud of our young engineers as they earned the coveted Team Spirit award.
 
Teams are forming for 2017-2018 school year.  Please print out a form.  Registration is due August 14, 2017. 
 
Go Knights!  
 
 
SCCS Lego League Team Competes and Wins Award
The SCCS Knights Lego League Team performed well at the Regional Lego League Tournament last Saturday with successful robotic missions, sound presentations, and hands-on experience solving engineering challenges.
And - best of all - our St. Croix Catholic Knights were awarded the "Team Spirit" award!

The award is given out by the judges to a single team in each division for any number of reasons that they notice throughout the day, and it was presented to the SCCS Knights this year for kindness to others, sportsmanship, and professionalism. Coach Brian York shares, "I think we can all agree that these are areas that we strive for at SCCS, so a public award for our team recognizing their achievements was a really proud moment for us. The coaches are not allowed to interact (or even be in the "playing field") so this award was 100% the result of the students acting on their own."  WOW! Way to go, boys. We are incredibly proud of you!!
