District-wide Robotics Meeting
Students of all ages, who are interested in robotics should attend the district wide meeting about the robotics program. The CHS robots will be in action and kids can try to drive them. Two robots putt golf balls!
There are three divisions of robotics teams in the district--elementary, middle school and high school. Students work together in their division to design a robot and have it accomplish tasks. As the students move to the high school, the requirements are stricter as to teamwork, responsibilities and, of course, time commitment. All district teams should bring their robots and projects to the meeting. We hope to have representatives from US FIRST, the robotics organization with thousands of teams including a number from our district. Robotics clubs can be organized at the meeting and existing clubs can recruit new members.
The District is on track to start a robotics course in the fall of 2013. It may be available as independent study by the spring of 2012-13 school year.
Any questions, please contact Mr. Tumolillo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
