Established in 2002, the Robotics Club has been a big part of Glenelg, involving over forty students. The club starts off the year by meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week to teach members basic skills that will be needed for the upcoming season, and then in January, they meet more often to prepare for competitions in March and April. Robotics is mainly student run, and they go to the Glenelg Workshop in room 176. The robotics club intends to teach students about mechanical designing, engineering, programming, electrical wiring, and business management. In addition to the competitions, robotics outreaches to the local area to do community service. Some previous community service the club has done in the past include the National Advocacy Conference, adopt a family for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Stem education fair at Lisbon, and much more!
Why You Should Join
Robotics covers a wide range of interests, including engineering, programming, and business. Anybody can join the club, even if you have not taken or are enrolled in technology or engineering classes. The club does far more than just building robots, such as community service, so anybody can get involved in robotics!
Meetings are occurring multiple times a week currently to prepare for the competitions in March and April. Also, periodically throughout the year, the club will be participating in community service projects. Contact the club for more information and specific dates and times.
