The Vietnamese Science & Culture Society of Oregon (VSCSO) and the Lac Hong staff volunteers formed a Lego Robotics team to compete in the local and state Lego Robotics tournament. The competition team consist of 9 – 14 year old Vietnamese American students. The staff also accepted younger students under 9 that were interested in just having fun and wanted to prepare for competition in the coming years.
In the Lego Robotics program, students are taught engineering concepts in mechanical, electrical, and software engineering concepts. Working as teams, students learn how to work together and solve complex problems. Volunteer instructors from local technology company such as Intel and ESI provide their times both as mentor and coaches for the students. ESI, a local technology company, have generously provided the facility and multimedia equipments for the team. Thank You ESI!!!
With over 15 students, we are forced closed the robotics program to any further enrollment. The current program runs thru December when the students start tournament competition. At the end of the year, the staff may open a spring program for those who are interested.
