    Information Meeting Presentation

     
    The McKamy Robotics Club is a place for students with an interest in mechanical engineering and/or computer programming to have fun on a team building a robot for competitions!  Currently, the club is limited to 7th and 8th graders.

    Students will typically be on a team of 5-6, filling one or more of the following roles:
    • Builder
    • Designer
    • Programmer
    • Driver
    • Engineering Notebook Manager

    Tuition is $150 for new students in 2023-24, $100 for returning students.  This money covers the cost of buying parts for each team and pays for the competition entry fees.
     
    Two parent mentors are required per team. These should be parents/guardians of students that are on the team. These mentors must be registered and have a background check at LISD's Voly site. 
     
    Time commitment for each team member is about 1-2 hours per week (this may increase to 3-4 hours or more the week before a competition).  Teams will set their own schedules, and their primary meeting place will typically be at the house of one of the team members.  Teams may arrange with Mr. Blalack to use the club's game field after school.  
     
    ALL ADULTS AT TEAM MEETINGS MUST BE VOLY-APPROVED (LISD's Voly site)
