Automation and Robotics is currently offered as a course taught by Mrs. Bauerly at the Middle School. Due to the increase in interest of students enrolling in the course, combined with increasing enrollment, we would like to offer additional sections of Automation and Robotics. During the 2018-2019 school year, one additional section will be offered by Mr. Dagit. The course will continue to be offered as an elective to eighth-grade students in subsequent school years. VEX Robotics kits for student use in the course have already been purchased through a curriculum buy cycle. Approximate Number of Students Impacted During the first year of implementation, approximately 25 students will take the Automation and Robotics course taught by Mr. Dagit. The course will continue to be offered at the Middle School for as long as it is supported by Project Lead the Way.
