Our organization was created in 2011 to introduce students in grades 1 through 8 to the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math using building blocks and computer software. We use the US First Lego League Junior Program for students in Grades 1 through 3 and Lego Mindstorm with the Maine Robotics Track Meet Challenges for students in grades 3 through 8.

Registration for the 2017-18 Season will open in late September. Please contact info (at) smgearbots (dot) org for more details.
The coaches and their teams will meet once a week from January through early-April. We currently have teams meeting in Gray/New Gloucester, Massabesic, Portland, Raymond, Saco, Scarborough, Standish, Westbrook, Windham, Wiscasset, and Yarmouth. With 4-6 kids per team, finding coaches is the hardest part. If you would like to start a team in another town in Southern Maine, find coaches, and then EMail info (at) smgearbots.org .
