Robots are coming to South Whidbey High School
February 8, 2010 · Updated 11:13 AM
A new club is forming at South Whidbey High School with the emphasis on science-fiction author Isaac Asimov’s favorite subject: robots.
“The Robotics Club is an exciting experience for any student, no matter what tech level, interested in robotics, engineering, technology, Web site development, computer-aided drawing, machining and design,” said teacher Jeff Greene.
Greene added that the club will provide opportunities to see how mathematics, science and communication skills transform into fully functional robots.
Funding for the club is provided by the Technology Student Association, a national nonprofit organization for middle and high school students with a strong interest in technology. The club hopes to be active by sponsoring a team for various robotics competitions in Washington state.
For the upcoming school year, club members will be able to participate in many competitions allowing students a chance to win college scholarships, gain valuable knowledge and build teamwork skills.
