Robotics is an invaluable resource for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills. It also develops critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving, along with other 21st century skills such as creativity, imagination, curiosity, and innovation. Robotics provides students with the ability to take an active role in their own learning and forms a necessary foundation for their lives in the ever-changing world.
HFCA’s robotics group gives students the opportunity to develop STEM skills with hands-on, collaborative projects. Students from 4th grade through 8th grade design, collaborate, plan, redesign, construct, create, assemble, invent, reinvent, write, present, and compete to see who has developed a winning robot.
The group will be meeting on Tuesdays after school until 4:30 starting in November.
This year’s Catholic schools’ robotics competition will be held on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.
