Meeting information and Goals

Our first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 1, 3:00-4:00pm.

We have 10 meetings planned for this fall and 10 meetings planned for spring.

Our goal this 2019-2020 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 future years. We will not participate at tournament this school year, as First Robotics Competition is open to students age 9 and older. http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll.

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

Scholarships for club fees are available. For information contact Mrs. Whatley linda.whatley@austinisd.org.
