Robotic clubs are a fun way kids can learn about sharing, friendly competition, winning awards, and having fun with other kids their age. Robotic clubs are one of many clubs supported by schools around the US. There are categories for robots built by very young kids all the way up to high school age kids. The young kids compete in categories that use non-soldering robot kits as well as some that require soldering. When parents look at these kits, they can be ensured their kids can be left alone to build their robots without fear of being burned when using non-soldering kits.
Oneof the biggest Robot Clubs around the US is known as US First. They were founded in 1989. In 1992 there were 28 teams in New Hampshire competing at many different levels. The youngest age for competition if 6 while the oldest age is 18. There are many different levels in this club and each state around the US can have their own First robot club. When Lego came out with their non-soldering robot kit, US First created a league for this group of robots. Kids ages 6 – 9 can join the JR First Lego League (Jr.FLL) where they will learn real-world challenges on solving problems by using robots. There are adults and teachers working right alongside these young kids. They learn not only about how to design and build non-soldering robots, but learn about presenting their robotic designs to their peers, the challenges scientists face today, and how to apply the math and science skills they are learning about in school. This is the first level a kid may get involved in with the club.
