Support the Robotics Team

The MVMS Robotics Team is selling t-shirts for a $20 donation. Bigger donations are welcome. The t-shirts are white and have “MVMS Robotics Team” printed on the front. On the back is a very cool drawing by Hendrick and his mom of a redwood tree with a robot standing at the base of the tree. At the bottom right it says, “Powered by Kiddo!”

Money raised will go to the purchase of additional robotics kits and for travel expenses to competitions. You can purchase t-shirts from the following students in Upper 7:
Ali C., Jay D., Jonah N., Jackson L., Joe W., Noah J. and Thatcher H.

Thanks for supporting the Robotics Team!

Robotics: Thanks Kiddo & Mr. MacDonald

We got a grant from Kiddo to do robotics!

Toward the end of the year all 7th graders will be working in teams to build robots as part of a unit on ratios and speed, but you don’t have to wait until May to learn about robotics. Join the MVMS Robotics Team, which will meet Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:30-8:30 a.m. starting January 10th. If you’re interested, pick up an application from Mr. MacDonald or me. Applications are due December 20th. The team also needs people interested in grant writing, building a website and filming a documentary.

Maybe you’re interested but you aren’t a morning person… then check out these websites about robotics:
JPL-NASA Robotics
Tech Museum of Innovation
US First
Robotics Nasa
Lego MindStorm Robots (Check out the videos of robots in action!)

Thanks Kiddo and Mr. MacDonald!
