• Rookie Robotics Team
  • At East Vincent Elementary School, the rookies get a team of their own.  This ensures that students new to robotics have the freedom to learn by exploration and doing -- one of the most meaningful ways we can learn.  This also allows all team members to have their voices heard and valued, instead of feeling overpowered or intimidated by those who have experience.
