General Info

This league is primarily for teams from elementary schools in LAUSD Local District Northwest that participated in the Elementary League last year. Most of these returning schools received Nelson Team Grants in 2015 or 2016. The league will meet five times on Fridays after school between September 8 and January 19. This league will be meeting in the Multi-Purpose Room on the same days that teams from rookie elementary schools are meeting in the Gynmasium.

The first session will be for orientation, training, and practice rounds for Teamwork Challenge and Skills Challenges. Teams will also sign up to provide one adult volunteer for one of the next three sessions and for the final session.

The second, third and fourth sessions begin with Robot Inspection, followed by Teamwork Challenge and Skills Challenge matches. Robots need to pass inspection by 4:45 PM to be included in the Teamwork Challenge match schedule. 

The final session will be the Championship session. In addition to Robot Inspection, Teamwork Challenge matches, and Skills Challenge matches, the Championship session will include Robot Design and STEM Research Project judging and Finals matches.
