ROBOTICS TEAM MEETINGS FOR 2017-2018
The Robotics Team is underway for the 2017-2018 season.  We are meeting on Thursdays, 3-4:30pm in the Tech Lab B222.
For now we will not require any forms or fees–just show up to to learn more about the team.   We are now building our basic Clawbots to learn more about the Vex system.
Parents and alumni are welcome too.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help in a broad range of commitment levels ranging from coaching, fund raising and grant writing, all the way to contributing snacks. 
Please contact Nick Nedd nedd_nicholas@svvsd.org with any questions or to volunteer.
