Robotics Club

Robotics Club gives members the chance to expand their abilities with programming, circuits, and robot design, or just chill with others that also enjoy these subjects. Members can start with the basics, or dive into more advanced topics or larger team projects. The club typically meets once a week to every other week depending on members’ schedules. Expect quarterly builds plus fun events like quad-copter racing and game nights.
