Introduction to Robotics

2014-2015 Introduction to Robotics
Thanks to a generous donation from Alcoa, we are able to offer Introduction to Robotics.

Introduction to Robotics is open to 4th graders and introduces students to programming through the construction and use of simple machines.

This 6-week course begins in March and will conclude with an open house for family and friends during which Introduction to Robotics students will share their work.  Specific dates for Introduction to Robotics are located under the "Robotics Schedule" tab at the top of the page.
