Linkbot Roboplay Club

The Linkbot Roboplay Afterschool Club- First meeting Wednesday, 8/30

   Valley View will host this year's first after school Linkbot RoboPlay Club meeting on Wednesday, August 30, from 2:30 - 4:00.The meetings take place on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:00 in room S2 (Mrs. Hawes’ classroom).  Students from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade are welcome to participate.  Mrs. Hawes serves as the club faculty advisor, and a local college student Tim serves as the instructor. Students from College Park serve as mentors and co-learners.  

   Club members will work with Linkbots, motorized robot models with a variety of accessories developed at the UC Davis Center for Integrated Computer and STEM Education. They will learn to program the robots using C++ programming in a student-friendly program environment. Club members will also work with other forms of robots and programming as well, which is really exciting. 
       Parents/guardians may sign up to bring snacks each week by clicking here.  The participation permission slip is here.
    Students interested in the club should go to S2 on Wednesdays after school. Questions can be directed to Mrs. Hawes at hawess@mdusd.org.
   This club is fully funded by the Tesoro Foundation, now known as Andeavor. We are grateful for the company's support for STEM education for MDUSD students.
