"Today we are the shapers of the world tomorrow."

The Robotics Program has been operating in the Pleasant Valley Community School District since 2002 when it was introduced as part of the "Bridgeview and Beyond" after-school program at Bridgeview Elementary.

In 2009, the program was expanded to provide a Basic
Programming course at the remainder of the District's three elementary schools: Cody, Pleasant View, and Riverdale Heights.

The program continued its expansion in 2010 with the
addition of Advanced Programming courses at all elementary schools and a robotics drop-in opportunity at Pleasant Valley Junior High.  The Junior High also established their first FIRST LEGO League team. 

In 2011, Basic and Advanced Programming
were added at our newest elementary school, Hopewell, and a second FLL team was formed at the Junior High.

The Robotics Program continued to grow with the addition of two FIRST Tech Challenge teams at Pleasant Valley High School for the 2013 season.


Robotics Opportunities at Riverdale Heights Elementary:
Introduction to Robotics - 4th grade
Basic Robotics - 5th and 6th grade
Advanced Robotics - 5th and 6th grade
FIRST LEGO League - 6th grade
Peer Coaching - 6th grade
