Robotics

The Sylvan Learning Center will be doing an after-school presentation on Robotics in the Drake gym on Tuesday, April 19th at 4:30. This is a no-cost hands on Robotics workshop that will use Legos and Robotics to teach principles of Math and Science. Look for a permission slip in the main office after Spring Break. Please understand that parents will need to provide transportation to and from the activity. Parents are invited to come in and watch!
