Pilot program expands to Brooks

OPEF VEX Robotics is thrilled to announce the In-House League program will be introduced at Brooks Middle School this year. This program was tested at Julian last year and got raves from students and parents. With the introduction of this program, OPEF hopes to be able to serve 73% more kids at Brooks than it did last year!

The Brooks In-House League is an after-school program designed for the student new to VEX Robotics with little or no experience with ROBOTC programming or for the student who cannot commit to the long season of our VEX Robotics Competitive Club. Students are taught the basics of robot design and programming.They then work in teams to build and program a VEX robot to play in our new In-House League competition, the Robot Rumble. Students will meet one day a week from 3:30-5 pm and have 2 sessions to choose from:

  • Fall In-House League: Tuesdays 3:30-5 pm, 10/03-12/19 (no meeting 10/31, 11/21); Robot Rumble: 12/12.
  • Winter In-House League: Tuesdays 3:30-5 pm, 1/09-3/13; Robot Rumble: 3/10.

There is no tryout required to join the In-House League. Students interested in knowing more about this program are invited to attend a Student Interest Meeting after school on 9/20 in room B302.

For details about the program, including how to sign up, check out the Brooks In-House League flyer.

This program is made possible by funding from the OPEF Peter Traczyk Innovation Fund.
