Meeting information and Goals

Our first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, 2:57-4:15pm.
We have 10 meetings planned for this fall and 10 meetings planned for spring.

Our goal this 2017-2018 year is to help students gain familiarity and confidence using the Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits and prepare students who are interested in participating in the robotics tournament in 2018-2019. We will not participate at tournament this school year, as First Robotics Competition is open to students age 9 and older.

We hold all students and families to the highest code of conduct. Both students and parents must sign a commitment contract, agreeing to work cooperatively, follow directions and respect authority. We see membership as a privilege, those who are unable or unwilling to cooperate may be asked to leave.

Scholarships for club fees are available. For information contact Mrs. Whatley  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
