Technology Programs

Robotics

Beginning in 3rd grade and continuing through Upper School, the robotics programs at Lakeview help students develop important skills such as teamwork, critical thinking and applied engineering. In the Lower School students, can participate in a weekly robotics club. The Middle and Upper Schools teams are competitive and part of a global program, which challenges students to creatively solve problems based upon unique yearly themes. These teams have won quite a few awards – here are a few of our recent ones!

Innovation Club

Students who are interested in creating with technology, can participate in our Middle School after-school Innovation Club. Meeting in the spring, the club is designed to provide students with the opportunity to tinker, explore, create and imagine with various tools and materials that integrate art, science, and technology, from electronics and 3D printing.

Lower School Technology

Lower School students can participate in our after-school robotics club, where they are introduced to Lego Mindstorm robotics and modular programming concepts.
