    West Woodland Robotics

    Instructors: Aaron Prestegard & Steve Sorensen

    There will be three courses per year:

    Fall:                        September 18th to November 13th

    Winter:                 January 8th to March 12th (During Mid-Winter Break 2/19, no Class)

    Spring:                  April 23rd to June 18th

    Fees for the program will be $60 and go to the WWPTA (scholarships are available from WWPTA)

    Fall quarter has already started. Winter quarter applications will go live in December. The winter quarter will be a special class and only open to girls. Our hope is to get more girls into technology and programming. We will except 6 pairs (12 students). More information will be available in early December 2018. 

    Applications will be available online or a hard copy can be obtained from outside the computer lab door.
