Holy Rosary students can participate in our after-school robotics teams that are part of the national FIRST Lego League (FLL) organization. There are two leagues available:
Kindergarten through Third Grade participate in Junior FIRST Lego League (JrFLL). Students research that yearâ€™s theme, come up with a Lego WeDo 2.0 model of their chosen topic, and present their findings at an exposition. They will have fun, while learning teamwork, creativity, and presentation skills. For more detailed information, including videos and FAQs, please visit: http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr
Fourth through Eighth Grade compete in FIRST Lego League (FLL). Students research an annual theme, create a Lego EV3 robotic to complete the assigned missions, decide on a real-world problem related to the theme that they want to create a solution for, and demonstrate their understanding of the league core values in from of judges. They will have a great time learning teamwork, engineering, problem solving, and presentation skills.

STEM/Agilent Family Nights
The Holy Rosary Agilent â€śAfter Schoolâ€ť science program is a hands-on science experiment series that brings STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) based science to students grades 3-8 (ages 9 to 13).
In particular it aims at providing hands-on life, physical and earth-science experiments
that have been designed into a complete “experiment-in-a-box.” The Agilent After School science kits obtained for Holy Rosary contain all of the materials for children to build science experiments such as electronic-circuit games, balloon-powered cars, terrariums, and more with support from a local Agilent employee volunteer.
While this program supplements in-school science lessons it also supports international,
federal and state common core standards for science and emerging STEM standards, Because Agilent After School is fully funded by Agilent and implemented by Mr. Short, it is provided at no cost to Holy Rosary and the children attending the Agilent After School program.
