Message from the school: St. Vincent School has had a Robotics Club for many years. However, this year we took a different approach and decided to try to engage as many students as possible into this club. The premise behind this was to encourage and promote the importance of team work and communication through the building and programming of robots. We invited students from Grades 3-6 to participate in the Robotics Club during their lunch hour. This initiative began in November and came to a close in May. Amazingly we had approximately 80 students who chose to participate in the Robotics Club this year.
