Explorer Club 116 Participates in First-Annual John G. Shedd Aquarium Robotics Challenge
Team Recognized by RLAS-116 Board of Education
Round Lake, Illinois (08/23/2015) — The Round Lake Area Schools CUSD #116 Board of Education spent some time during their August 17, 2015 meeting to recognize a group of young engineers!
In May, the Explorer Club 116 participated in an Aerial Robotics Challenge, which resulted in a first place for poster presentation and second place in the overall competition, only following the Illinois Math & Science Academy!
Exploring is geared toward career exploration with a vision to provide positive and meaningful real-world career experiences and leadership development opportunities for all teenagers and young adults in their chosen field of interest.
Explorer Club 116 was formed in September 2014 by a group of middle school students with an interest in flying quadcopters. Some of the parents were part of Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee and Parent Advisory Committee that met on Friday evenings at Magee Middle School. The members were in 6-8 grades with varied academic backgrounds.
