Robotics Club - 2021/2022 School Year 4th and 5th Graders
Saratoga Elementary School PTA will be partnering with MSET Robotics of Saratoga High School to offer a robotics club to 4th-5th Grade SES students* beginning in August 2021. SES PTA would like to gauge the interest of our community and will begin pre-registration this summer. This club will require strong parent participation from each parent and at least one chair.

About SHS MSET Robotics Mentorship
They have had bounding success with this program at Argonaut for the last couple of years that it has been in place. They have guided students through building their robots, coding their tasks, and developing and prototyping their Innovation Project. This year, one of the First Lego League teams they mentored, qualified to NorCal Championships as a first-year rookie team, with incredible point values for their robot game and a 3D Printed AR headset incorporated into their Innovation Project. This team was HER, an all-girls team from Foothill!
From a Saratoga High School MSET Robotics Mentor "The program will introduce SES students to the engaging world of robotics and give them an opportunity to compete in First Lego League Competitions. The students will be able to explore all aspects of hardware, software, as well as project development. The students will also learn problem-solving, critical thinking, and above all, gracious professionalism. These skills will be ones they use in the real world, well after their involvement in the established and renowned First Robotics Program."
