In order to cut costs for competition we will need to provide 8 volunteers for each of our 3 competitions. It will bring down the registration fee from $75 to $25. With nearly 60 kids and over 100 parents we should be able to get 24 spots filled. Information will be coming home today, please contact me and not sign up so that I can be sure to get 8 for each competition.
The competitions are:
Dec 5 Woodbridge High School
Jan 9 Patriot High School
Feb 6 Mount Vernon High School
Let Robotics Begin
The robotics club has started meeting and we are 8 teams strong. We meet each Tuesday and Wednesday. I know we will not meet Oct 20 due to being bumped by music for our space.
The first Saturday competition will be in December but I am unable to solidify until the event opens for registration. It will take place at Woodbridge High School.
Team 14P at the Vex World Championships
Marsteller Robotics Summer Camp
The Robotics Club will be meeting over the summer!
This year we are going to get an early start in order to get robots ready for competition in December. The club will meet the week of August 17th -21nd from 8:30 until 12:30. The large blocks of time will enable us to accomplish more than we can during the school year. A field will be set up and stay up along with a computer lab so that I can have some programming classes. Students that attend the weeklong camp will form teams and start the build for this year game. It would be helpful if students do some research over the summer so that they are bringing ideas for this year’s build. The cost of the week is $100.00 with all profits going to the robotics club to purchase new equipment and to register for competitions.
The camp is only open to students that will be in 7th or 8th grade during the 2015-2016 school year. Students in 6th grade will again be doing Vex IQ this year.
I encourage all 7th and 8th grade students wanting to do robotics next year to attend.
Please fill out the form below and return by June 12.
