Mason-Corinth Library Media Center

Join the MCE Robotics Club!

Mason-Corinth Elementary is offering students the opportunity to participate in a Robotics Club. Members of the Robotics Club will learn how to build and program robots using Lego Mindstorms NXT Robots. The Robotics Club will meet after school on Mondays and on selected Saturdays in the library. Due to the fact we can only accept the first twelve applications, attendance at the meetings is mandatory. Students will work as a team to program a robot to complete a set of challenges. Two teams that complete the most challenges will compete at a regional competition at Georgetown College on Saturday, April 16th. More details about regionals will be sent home closer to the time. If you would like your child to participate, please complete the application and return it to school as soon as possible.
