Arlington Heights Robotics Club Featured in Local Media
Students from the Arlington Heights Elementary SeaPerch Underwater Robotics club visited WTIU studios last week to film a spot for the Friday Zone. The Friday Zone episode is slated to air at 4:30 p.m. April 10 on WTIU in Bloomington. You can view the entire episode via YouTube below. The group will be competing at the Regional SeaPerch competition on March 7 at North Daviess. A story about the club also appears in the February 23, 2015 issue of the Bloomington Herald Times. The
Arlington Heights afterschool club is facilitated by Mr. Brett Rice, a parent
volunteer and employee at Crane. The program engages 25 students in a regular
afterschool program where students learn to construct, program, and control
small underwater robots. Learning these
basic engineering skills in elementary school engages students in a way unlike
most other programs. Students use math, learn principles of small motors, learn
to solder, and work as a team in this program. Ultimately, the program aims to
inspire students to pursue future education and careers in STEM (Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
MCCSC values the diversity in our schools and community. All students’ experiences and perspectives are assets.
