Do all your clubs at school seem the same; a whole lot of work and nothing to show for it? Well, if you have a skill or interest in engineering, programming, and drafting, then the robotics team is for you! Maple Mountain High School is hosting the first ever district-wide robotics team, meaning all high school students (grades 9 – 12) in Nebo School district are invited to participate. The robotics team is entering a NASA sponsored robotics event called “First Robotics.” Teams from around the world participate in a robotics game developed by NASA each year. Sound interesting?
