FIRST Robotics

Through the FIRST Robotics program, Girl Scouts of all ages become real-world problem solvers as they program robots to complete challenges and create a Take Action project that addresses the season's theme.

Girl Scouts of Western Ohio sponsors two FIRST LEGO teams each year!

FIRST LEGO League Explore (Daisies & Brownies)

In Explore, teams of students ages 6-10 focus on the fundamentals of engineering as they explore real-world problems, learn to design and code and create unique solutions made with LEGO bricks and powered by LEGO Education WeDo 2.0.

FIRST LEGO League Challenge (Juniors & Cadettes)

Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students ages 9-16 engage in research, problem-solving, coding and engineering – building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. As part of Challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.

The Innov8 robotics team designs and builds a robot from scratch each year to compete in the FIRST Teach Challenge competitions. Girl Scouts on this team will learn how to design, build, and program a robot and gain experience in CAD, Java programming, and more! This team is for high school girls, but eighth graders will be considered.
