Open to 4th and 5th grade students (6th graders welcomed if space is available)
If you are in 4th grade and thinking of joining the competitive FLL robotics team at Phoebe Hearst in Fall 2020, join us for a new robotics club after school this year (see dates below). The FLL team will not compete this year; instead we will train the next generation of students with an 8 two hour session program that will prepare them in programming (Micro Python and EV3 Basic) and in building robots. We will also review and understand how FLL works.
We will ask members of this group to become part of a 6 member team** to compete in the Fall 2020 FLL competition season. ** Robotics Club participants will be given priority when forming next year’s competition team. ***Only 10 club spots available.
Meetings are from 1:30-3:30pm. Meeting Dates for 2019-20: Nov 7th, Nov 21st, Dec 5th, Dec 19th, Jan 9th, Jan 23rd, Feb 6th, and Feb 20th, (March 5th will be a date for those members that have decided to be in the competition team for 2020.)
There is an $80.00 dollar fee to attend the Phoebe Hearst Robotics Club, Payable to Phoebe Hearst PTO. Funds will be used to replace and renew robotics parts and field kit. The club is taught by a parent volunteer. If you have questions please email Marco Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
