Saints Robotics - Scratch Camp

July 20-31, M/W/F 10AM-12PM

I am a member of the Interlake robotics team, Saints Robotics. We participate in the First Robotics Competition, a robotics competition that takes place during the school year. Over the summer, we try to give back to the community, by hosting a summer camp called SERC, for elementary school kids. Because of Coronavirus, we are unable to host this, so we have decided to host an online summer camp instead. In this class, we will teach the kids the basics of Scratch, and programming so that they will gain knowledge that they can take into the workplace, and into life. We would really appreciate it if you could inform the parents of your elementary school about this. CLICK HERE FOR A FLYER with relevant information, including where parents can sign their kids up for this camp.

Thank you for your time,

Saints Robotics


 LEGO ROBOTICS

Calling Parents of 3rd-5th Graders

A Sammamish HS Robots Team is launching the FIRST LEGO League (or FLL) to get more elementary and middle school kids involved in Robotics. FLL is a program that gives students the opportunity to design, program, build, and compete with small LEGO robots, and has plenty of opportunities for STEM learning.

Because of this, they are creating the FIRST LEGO League Alliance of Bellevue, a group of parents who are willing to mentor small teams of students. Please see the flyer below for more details or view the flyer as a PDF.

CUB SCOUT PACK 435

Last year, Cub Scouts from Medina Elementary School built and raced cars, rockets, and boats, built models, practiced archery, hiked, camped, biked, swam, practiced first aid, visited a fire station, helped distribute food to the needy, had a sleepover at the zoo, scooted around in a giant hamster ball, went fishing, and much more. And this year will be even better.

Best of all, our Pack welcomes all boys. There are no tryouts. No cuts. We encourage boys to try new things, meet new friends, and push their limits in a supportive, no-bullying environment. The Cub Scout motto is “Do your best” and we strive to help our Scouts fulfill this promise.

You can join anytime during the school year. Check out our calendar at www.pack435.org and join us for a meeting, event, or adventure. Go places. Do stuff. Be part of the fun and adventure of Cub Scouts. For more information, visit www.pack435.org, or contact John Franck (johnf123@gmail.com).
