The Coppell Education Foundation is excited to partner for the second time with Verizon to offer the Red & Black Robotics Camp. The program is designed specifically for 5th and 6th graders. During the camp students will build and program their own Parallax Boe-Bot Robot to perform a variety of tasks. The students will get to take the robots home at end of the camp.
The weekly, two-hour class will be staffed by Verizon employees and will be held at Coppell Middle School West. All students will need to bring a windows based laptop for programming the robots.
The camp will take place over an eight-week period, meeting on Wednesday nights starting on January 11th. The final day, which will be Saturday March 4th, parents are encouraged to come and watch the Parade of Robots.
“We are thrilled for Verizon to partner with us again for this camp. It is such a great opportunity for student in our district,” said Adrienne Nester, the camp co-chair from the Coppell Education Foundation.
Registration opens on Wednesday, November 2nd at 8:00 am. The camp only has 50 spots and last year it sold out in less than ten minutes. More information about the camp can be found on the Coppell Education Foundation website, www.coppellisdef.com.
