Mrs. Linehan, sponsor of the robotics club, told the C-T: “It’s a big deal that the kids understand that we are scientists because we are asking questions. We are encouraging these students to think outside the box, to see a problem and ask how they can do something to fix it … They’re going to make mistakes and they’ll discover how they can learn from them, so that they’re not afraid to make those mistakes and go after something challenging.”

The club just started meeting recently, and they'll be working toward competitions later in the school year.

Some of the members hope to work in the field of robotics some day. This club gives them great experiences to explore and learn!
