National Robotics Week Next Year
If you don’t have the support to host an event this year, start planning for next year. For example, if you want to start a robotics team at your child’s school, now is the time to lay the groundwork and find coaches and sponsors. This will give you a chance to find grants to help you keep costs down or maybe even let you start your team for free. Be sure to loop in your kids to help plan and run whatever it is you decide to do.
