The Horace Mann Digital Dragons Club meets each Wednesday and Thursday from 2:20 - 3:30 starting in October until the Raiders Rumble competition in early December, 2019. Registration for this club is required and is now full for the 2019 - 2020 school year.
The team members, consisting of 4th and 5th graders, construct various Lego challenges identical to those at the Raider Rumble. The team subsequently learns to independently program their Lego Mindstorm robot to complete specific tasks presented by these challenges in the hopes of successfully replicating these tasks at the Raider Rumble. Each completed task earns the team points. In addition to the robot/programming portion, there is a research component associated with the competition which also earns points.
