Robots For All
We envision a world where STEM leaders are heroes and role models; Where all students have opportunities for meaningful STEM challenges; and Where students grow into innovative, creative, problem-solvers who are ready to tackle the big problems of the next century.
First Lego League
First Lego League (FLL) challenges kids in elementary and middle schools to think like real life scientists and engineers. They build, test, and program an autonomous robot to solve a set of missions in the robot game, as well as solve a real-world problem in a project relating to the robot game. G3 hosts an annual tournament for FLL teams around Atlanta and supports them during the build season.
FOCUS + Fragile Kids is an organization for children with special needs and disabilities around Georgia. We partner with FOCUS to host “Adaptive Maker Faires” for these students across Metro Atlanta, where we set up activities relating to robots, drones, STEM, and crafting. The activities are specially designed to work with the children’s sensory, communicative, and mobility needs. These events are also an opportunity to train our volunteers in working with children with special needs.
Drones For Good
Drones For Good (DFG) is an exciting STEM competition involving unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for students in middle school, created by G3 robotics. Students develop an innovative UAV-based solution to a problem in their community, as well as build and fly their own K'Nex drone for an exciting flying competition. G3 founded and hosts the DFG competition and mentors teams across the city.
First Robotics Competition
The First Robotics Competition (FRC) is a competitive robotics event for high school students. Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams are challenged to build and program robots to compete in challenges with new rules and features each year. G3 has helped create two new FRC teams in local high schools, Maynard Jackson and Booker T. Washington.
VEX Robotics Competition
In the VEX Competitions, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams from around the world in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test on the playing field as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels; local champions go on to compete at VEX Worlds each April!
