Are you interested in learning how to write a C program to make a robot run an obstacle course? What about making a robot sing, dance, or even putting several robots together to create a giant machine which you control? If the answer is yes, then the Granite Oaks Robotics Club is for you. We’ll be meeting after school on Tuesdays from 3:10-4:10 starting on Tuesday the 27th. The top robotics programmers in 7th and 8th grade will get to go to UC Davis in May to compete with the top students from across California in a huge robotics competition held at UC Berkeley, Davis, and Irvine. Come learn how to program robots and earn a spot to represent Granite Oaks and Rocklin Unified at a statewide competition. See Mr. Waddell in A4 for more information.
