Dock Robotics Club
The CD Robotics club meets during Activity Periods on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year. We use the Vex Robots (www.vexrobotics.com) to design and build robots which are no larger than 18" x 18" x 18" and can perform various tasks either by remote control or autonomously (programmed in RobotC). Designers, builders, and programmers, and dreamers are encouraged to visit us and join in the fun! If you can't make it during activity period, you are welcome to join us at after-school build events and competitions; just let Mrs. Anderson know you're interested.
