Robotics Club helps high school students with FRC
SFCC’s Robotics Club has been working with high school students and community mentors to build a robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition. The group is working evenings and Saturdays in an upstairs space in the SFCC Fitness Center.
Jen Kitrell is a parent whose daughter first got involved as a child in Minnesota. She appreciates the support that Dean Jenny Landen has given the program in arranging space for the team.
The team is starting small this year. Kitrell would love to see it expand with more adults. Those interested should contact her at FRCteam7649@gmail.com. Mentors are not just scientists – some are skilled at computer programming and others have skills using power tools.
Students interested in the Robotics Club should contact either Sara Lanctot or Michael Frey.
