After school Robotics:
Westgate Christian School is very excited to host a robotics club for students ages 9-15, grades 4-8, who attend Westgate Christian School or are members of WCHEA (Westgate Christian Homeschool Education Association). Students will design, build, and program a robot. They will be split into small teams throughout the season to develop team building and presentation skills as well as work with the robots. The club will have an in-house competition where they will then explain their design and demonstrate on a table-top playing field.
Students will be selected via an application process.
Although the club fee will cover a portion of the cost, further funding is needed to secure additional supplies and miscellaneous materials. If any of you work for organizations that support STEM initiatives through financial donations and would be willing to help us with communication, please let us know right away.
John Howell will serve as the Robotics Club instructor with assistance from Carol McBride. Their qualifications are listed below. Carol McBride will serve as the classroom assistant in addition to completing other administrative tasks.
Thank you very much for your interest in this exciting new venture for our school.
Carol McBride – Club Assistant/Room Monitor
