Students-Only! Coding Area- San Diego Botball Tournament @ USD.jpg
Jr Botball Area: Students 3rd grade and up Solve Challenges to Earn Badges
The rainy season is perfect for indoor Saturday indoor Math & Science Challenge Events!
Math & Science Challenge Events are non-competitive “tournaments” that allow K-8 students to experience the excitement of working to solve robotics challenges in the Arena.
Today we held our second Math & Science Challenge Event of 2019. Thank you to Hoover High and Wilson Middle School for hosting.
And thank you for the ongoing support of the San Diego Rotary Club, the Hoover High Computer Club and Teacher Jack Wetzel, and Pam Pham and the other Hoover Cluster Elementary Teachers. They have worked together to create a fabulous early learning STEM culture for their students!
Rotary Club of San Diego have joined with school principals to promote robotics based STEM
“We will be kicking off the School Year with a meeting of the School Champions on Thursday, October 4, from 4:30 to 5:30pm at Wilson Middle School ( 3838 Orange Ave., San Diego, 92105).. There will be familiar School Champions present, as well as some new Champions to meet, and it is always encouraging to have Rotary well represented at this initial meeting of the School Champions.
I view Rotary’s role as a facilitator for STEM projects, and some new projects will be presented to the Champions, as well as the popular Jr. Botball Robotics program.
Our Lead Coordinators this year will again be Phet Pease and Lily Vu Brown, and attached is Phet’s invitation to the School Champions and Principals to attend.”
Best of regards,
San Diego Rotary STEM Committee

Let’s get our kids in the game! When students start programming and problem-solving at an early age, STEM skills become second nature. Junior BotBall starts in third grade! #EarlyEd, #STEM, #CSforall,#GCER2018, #JuniorBotball, pic.twitter.com/u0Y5dt7hKM
