The MPES Robotics Club builds with Lego Mindstorms EV3 Educational Robotic sets. This is the newest Robotics set created by Lego Education. Robotics Club members learn to build basic robot units and program the robot to move in straight lines and curves. After we learn the basics, the next step is to build and program creatively. Robotics students build battle bots and challenge each other!
You will like Robotics Club if: You think it's fun to spend hours building something only to destroy it in 30 seconds. You like computers and want to learn about programming and how things work. You understand it takes patience and hard work to achieve a goal. You like to create things on your own, but are also capable of working with others in pairs or teams.
The club currently has 14 robots, so each session will accommodate 28 students.
Open to 4th and 5th Graders.
We meet in the library.
We will host one 10 week session in the Fall and one 10 week session in the Spring.
Mr. and Mrs. Smitherman
