New! Elementary Robotics Club
This week concluded the TCH Elementary Robotics Club. This non-competitive group of 32 emerging engineers and problem solvers, built 10 unique robots and coded them to perform commands. Some of the robots featured delightful dance moves, silly sounds and color-changing eyes, while other robots performed more functional actions like clasping and moving objects.

I was completely astonished with the level of enthusiasm, teamwork and individual motivation demonstrated by every single participant. ~Jennifer Smith, TCH Parent and Volunteer Robotics Coach
