Kennedy Jr. High School will again be offering a non-competitive robotics club this year. VEX robotics system is designed to offer young students a rich and exciting introduction to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The system encourages teamwork, problem solving, and leadership opportunities for our middle school students. This is an introductory session with limited opportunities for advanced programming practice. This club is open to 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
We plan on offering three opportunities to sign up. Space is limited to 24 students per session. We will do our best to accommodate as many students as we can.
