Robotics Club

 While we enjoyed the success of the CWE Robotics team last year, we will not be offering a Robotics Club for the 2023-2024 school year, due to the lack of a teacher sponsor.

Please remember that all our College Wood students have the opportunity to explore robotics concepts and grow their STEM skills during our weekly STEM specials classes. Students in grades 3-5 also utilize VEX robotics kits throughout the year.
