Robotics Camp participants from the previous year.

The Coppell ISD Education Foundation (CEF) is excited to partner for the fourth time with Verizon to offer the 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 classes 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 9, 2019. The final day, which will be Saturday March 2, 2019 parents are encouraged to come and watch the Parade of Robots.

“We appreciate Verizon’s continuing support.  It is such a great opportunity for our students and our district,” said Magdalena Chambless, the camp co-chair from CEF.

Registration opens on Friday, November 9, 2018 at 8:00 am.  The camp only has 64 spots and last year it sold out in the first day.  More information about the camp can be found on the CEF website, www.coppellisdef.com.
