  • Engineering for Kids STEM Club

    The Engineering for Kids STEM Club introduces students to a new, hands-on, STEM learning lesson every week from various engineering disciplines. For each lesson, students focus on developing 21st Century skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and peer collaboration skills. These life skills provide students with the confidence to approach challenges in their lives and realize that they can succeed. Engineering for Kids has a growing library of 300+ individual lessons so we never have to repeat.
  • First Tech Challenge (FTC)

    Eden Prairie's FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) program is a robotics program designed for 7th & 8th graders to learn about FIRST robotics. As a team member, your child will design and build a robot, create an engineering notebook, present their design process and robots to judges and have fun competing in competitions. They will also attend outreach events, and a fundraiser. The season begins in early September and may go into April. Meeting times are Tuesdays after school until 5 pm and Saturday mornings 9 am - 12 pm. The program is mentored by the Eden Prairie High School Talon Robotics team, along with adult and parent volunteers. Team formation is dependent on volunteer coach/mentors. If we are unable to identify a mentor for the team, all participants will be refunded. Families will be required to transport their student(s) to and from each tournament, which take place throughout the Twin Cities metro area. Questions can be directed to Gail Silewski - FTC Coordinator gsilewski@gmail.comQuestions about FIRST program like FTC?

  • Jr. First Lego League (Jr. FLL)

    What IS Junior FIRST® LEGO® League…Junior FIRST® LEGO® League in Minnesota (MN Jr.FLL) is part of an international robotics program that includes teams from 13 countires.Teams work together to discover how science and technology impact the world around them. Guided by adult coaches, teams work with LEGO® elements to build a motorized model and create a Show Me poster related to their research of a yearly theme.The Challenge – What a team doesThe Challenge is thematic, changes yearly, and has two parts – the LEGO® Model and the Show Me Poster. Teams of 2-6 students typically meet once per week for 4-6 weeks. Show Me Poster Teams research the current Challenge theme, and display their findings on a Show Me Poster. LEGO® ModelUsing all LEGO® elements, teams will design and build a model correlating with the current Challenge theme that contains both a simple machine and a motorized part. Core ValuesThe 6 Jr.FLL Core Values introduce the concepts of being a team, discovery and Gracious Professionalism®. Jr.FLL ExposThe culmination of the hard work for many teams is their participation in a MN Jr.FLL Expo. Volunteer Reviewers will interview the teams to learn about their LEGO® Model and Show Me Poster. Teams may also share their work on the virtual Jr.FLL Showcase. This hands-on program is focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-9 and capturing a child’s natural curiosity. Visit the national Jr.FLL webpage for more program details.

  • Talon Robotics (FRC) - Team 2502

    Talon Robotics is the FIRST Robotics Competition team for EPHS. Every year, FRC creates a challenge, this years game is Stronghold.  Our goal is to build a robot to meet this challenge. In last year's game, Aerial Assist, we had to shoot giant balls into goals.  FRC, which stands for FIRST Robotics Competition, is run by FIRST, a non-profit organization that manages other robotics competitions such as FIRST Lego League and FIRST Tech Challenge, which are the elementary and middle school equivalents of FRC. FIRST, which stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, was founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen to motivate young people to pursue opportunities in STEM while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills. FIRST seeks to promote teamwork and collaboration even among competing engineers and encourages rival teams to help each other when necessary. This is termed Gracious Professionalism or Cooperation. Team members will also be required to register through the FIRST organization.
