FIRST LEGO League Challenge is a research and robotics tournament for Year 5 and 6 learners at Mayfair.
Every year, the students work on a joint project for several weeks as a team. They plan, construct and program an autonomous robot, conduct research on a topic of their own choice and prepare a presentation of their findings. The educational program focuses on FIRST`s core values of respectful interaction, shared experience and critical thinking.
After several weeks of preparation, teams participate in a school event with the most exceptional and diverse learners participating in a regional competition day and the Nationals in Auckland. A the events learners present their findings in the categories of Research, Robot Game, Robot Design, and Core Values.
If teams are successful at the national event in Auckland they have an opportunity to represent New Zealand at international invitationals or the world festival in the USA.
Mayfair has a proud history of success.
