Marin IJ Article about MVMS Robotics Team

Here is an article about the MVMS Robotics Team printed in today’s Marin Independent Journal.

Next Saturday the team will be competing in the Robogames at Fort Mason. If you have time, come out and check out the amazing things robots can do… and support your classmates. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for kids 7-17. I hope to see you there.

Lego Mindstorm Robots

As we wrap up the unit on robotics, a number of you have asked me where to find the kits. Here’s a link to the Lego Mindstorm kits.

People who like robotics and building things will also want to make sure they go to the Maker Faire next year. They had a whole building dedicated to robotics. You may also enjoy the podcast by Bre Pettis of  Make Magazine. Check out Mousey the Junkbot and Safety Ninja.

If you enjoyed the robotic unit, feel free to apply to be on the robotics team next year. The main event we’ll be participating will be from September to January with the Lego First. The focus will be on using technology and robots to solve ecological problems.

This is probably the last post of the year. Enjoy! You can also request to get deleted from the emails by looking at the bottom of the post.

Have a  fun summer!
