The Lakewood Computer Clubhouse will be running a Day of Robots for youth, ages 9-17 on Thursday, December 30th from 10:00 to 4:00. This informative and hands-on day will be held at the Robotics Center located at Lakewood Presbyterian Church, 8601 104th St SW, Lakewood. Kids who have never built a LEGO robot can build, experiment with and program one. Drop in for any part of the day and get involved – Clubhouse programs are free.
The Clubhouse is also assembling a VEX Robotics Team and is creating prototypes for a competition robot. More middle- and high schoolers are needed. No experience needed – only imagination. The VEX Game this year is called ROUND UP and more information about the challenge can be found at www.vexforum.com/wiki/index.php/Round_Up. Practices will be held Mondays and Wednesdays after school and the competition dates are the last Saturday in February and the first Saturday of March.
