Junior Robotics League
After the success of the summer camps, Team Driven started a Junior Robotics League competition to spread the word about FIRST Robotics. It is open to anyone kindergarten through 8th grade and takes place during the fall. Prior to the competition, teams of two to five students are formed and raise money to buy a VEX Robotics kit which they use to compete with.
For the last four years, Team Driven has hosted this league. There are typically 30 teams that participate place in the league. The teams are given a game and rules for the competition. They get six weeks to work on their robot until the competition, which is staged almost identically to the actual FIRST competitions. Team Driven members take part not only in judging and setting up the matches, but also in mentoring the teams throughout the season. By using Team Driven members as mentors, those members get to ensure the future of Lee’s Summit High School Robotics. The Team Driven alumni also like to come back and help out at this event.
