Clubs and Activities
Trinity Oaks Student Clubs
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) inspires young people’s interest and participation in science and technology. FIRST offers four programs that vary by age and challenge. At Trinity Oaks Christian Academy, we offer First Lego League (FLL). FLL teams design, build and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology. The robots complete task on a thematic playing surface. It is not all about building a robot. Students create innovative solutions to problems facing today’s scientists while embracing FIRST’s Core Values. Problems and robotic challenges are based on the year’s themes. Past themes have focused on improving the quality of life of seniors, discovering innovative ways to improve people’s health, and discovering ways to help people learn better. To learn more about the FIRST programs go to http://www.ilfirst.org/fll.html.
Middle school and high school students under the age of 15 can participate in FLL. The team consists of 10 students who are interested in using their imaginations and exploring mathematical and scientific concepts. It involves more than just building with Legos. Students will research a topic, create a solution, and present their ideas to the judges. Practices start the first week of school and continue until the competition in December. If the team qualifies for the next level, practices would also be held in January. Exact dates and times of practices will be discussed at the initial parent meeting at the beginning of the school year.

It is our goal to practice these maxims in everything we do. Our club, Kon Jo, means guts. We believe it takes extreme courage to do great things.We are the karate club that believes in the power of the human spirit. We have the courage to see the beauty and power inside all of us.
