School Clubs

Foothill Clubs 

 

Robot

 

Robotics Club

  • Club Meetings - Thursdays 2:30 - 4:00 pm
  • Location: Classroom T-2
  • This is open to all Foothill students

All students are welcome. No experience is needed.

Purpose (the WHY): There is a need for programs to inspire students to develop an early interest in robotics, programming, and technology as a result of declining participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs. A collection of resources providing research on this trend and the need that employers have to fill STEM positions. Students will learn how to program Linkbots using C++, which is a student version of the C language.
