Desert Community Robotics Childrens Club
A free family/community based club for children 9 to 14yrs old and their families. We meet once a week at the MMR Community Center and run fund raising events in MMR. Due to limited supplies, enrollment is currently only open to MMR residents. Parents are required to register with their child (or children), attend meetings and share in bringing snacks to meetings. Siblings of the 9-14yr. olds, ages Kinder to 3rd grade meet as well each week. The older children mentor the younger ones.
We operate on volunteerism, fundraising, grant writing and corporate sponsorship. We welcome involvement from MMR businesses that are a good fit with the club. Mentors from Scottsdale Community College and Chaparral’s High School robotics team are currently assisting at meetings.
We use a wide range of robotic kits and provide team building exercises (not necessarily robotics, more problem solving) at the beginning of our weekly meetings.
Involvement in structured pre-meeting activities or community events and advertising opportunities. We are working on team shirts that will be worn at weekly meetings and in local robotic competitions.
