Summer camp 2023
The Metea Valley Robotics club provides middle school students (6th, 7th, 8th) a chance to work with high school robotic club mentors in the summer on designing, building, and programing robots. Middle school students will be placed in a group of other students and a high school mentor. Each day the mentors will have a lesson and activities that will lead to a fully functional robot that will be paired with another group to compete against another set of two teams in the VEX arena. At the end of the 2 weeks your child will be exposed to:
-The Design process -Vex structure -Vex programing -Building -Testing and troubleshooting -Driving a robot
-and finally competing in the vex arena

Mr. Casey Joined the club 2020 and took over running the day-to-day operations of the club. Mr. Casey has brought a wealth of information from his science classes to aid in students designs and giving students advice in building robots. During his tenure Mr. Casey has developed the club’s leadership team that was started by Mr. Romeo and refined it and has made great strides in fostering leadership in our students.
Ms. McBride Joined in the club in 2022 also from the science Department. She has been eagerly learning about Vex competitions and Vex robotics this year and has shared her knowledge with the club which has been invaluable. Ms. McBride has served as a role model for all our students but especially to our female participants. We all know that STEM occupations have historically been dominated by males it is important for our female students to have Ms. McBride as an example that STEM occupations are for anyone!
