NEBRASKA ROBOTICS EXPO 2018
The Nebraska Robotics Expo will be held at Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum on Saturday, February 17, 2018. Westside would like to take 6 TEAMS to this amazing event!
A Loveland parent will be holding workshops on Saturdays in January to prepare for the event. All 3rd-6th grade students at Westside Elementary Schools are invited to attend. Even if a child decides he/she does not want to participate in the Expo, they are still welcome to attend the Saturday workshops.
Descriptions of the Robotics Expo events can be found by clicking the links below.
Please fill out the form linked below to reserve your spot for the Saturday workshops. They will be offered on January 6, 13, 20 and 27 (all Saturdays) in the Swanson Library basement from 3-6pm.
There is only space for 20 participants at each session.

Should we sign up for just one Saturday or more?
You can sign up for multiple Saturdays if you like.
Will different topics be taught at each session?
Students will become familiar with driving the CEENBoTs using the hand-held remote control. Different obstacle courses will be set up for the students to become familiar with the robots. The older students (5th-6th) will be given instruction on how to use CEENBoT Commander to program the robots.
Since programming is a skill that needs much practice, it will be the focus of all of the Saturday sessions. Those students only interested in driving the robots will have different obstacle courses to practice each Saturday.
Can you confirm that there were spots available when I signed my kids up? I have not received an email. Also, will there be a reminder send out?
Thank you for your comment. I will send out confirmations for sign-ups by Friday, Dec. 22.
