Robotics Club for 4th Graders

Is your child in the 4th grade and interested in Robotics Club?
This robotics opportunity is for students in fourth grade for the next six weeks. It will then switch over to another grade level. Please do not sign up if your child can't attend every session. This is a continuous learning curriculum and if they miss a day, they miss a lot. We will meet from 3:15-4:15. February 8th, 15th, March 1st, 8th, 15th, and 29th. Your child will need to be picked up promptly outside the blue hallway door (4th and 5th-grade hallway). They will come to robotics from class at the walker bell.



There is limited space because of materials, so please sign up as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Stubbs at rhickman1@sdale.org.


Please complete this form if interested.
