2018-19 STEAM Clubs

Click here to go to the competitive robotics section.  Students are welcome to participate in both STEAM Club (Thurs/Fri) and competitive robotics (Tue/Wed) where coaches are available. 

 

Thanks to generous support from the Hyalite PAC, we will offer STEAM Clubs for every grade this year!  STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Club will explore each of these subjects using Lego Robotics, Spheroes, coding, chemistry, physics and more in a hands-on, age appropriate way.  

 

STEAM clubs allow your students to continue their exploration of these fields outside the classroom in a more casual setting.   These clubs will replace the “exploratory robotics” programs from 2nd/3rd grade last year.  Please see below for competitive robotics offerings.
