OPEF is enhancing our popular VEX Robotics teams at both middle schools, thanks to a $4,000 grant awarded in September by the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation. The money will be used to add hardware and software to accommodate a total of 18 teams.
Exciting new plans for the after-school clubs, open to all middle school students (and including several all-girls’ teams), also include computer programming workshops for team leaders that will dramatically boost the programming capabilities of students.
VEX Robotics is making science, math, engineering and technology as cool for kids as sports!
