Through a grant from an anonymous Petra family and in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University and their world-renowned Robotics Academy, Petra Academy will pilot a new robotics program this April and May. The program is open to Petra’s 7th-12th grade students and will cost $95 per student, which covers the opportunity for students to test for certification through Carnegie Mellon.
Class will meet on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4-5:30 p.m. and will not conflict with Ultimate Frisbee practice. Note: This is an academic class, not a club; attendance throughout the course is required to be eligible for certification. Interested students should sign up on the Secondary bulletin board and bring a check for $95 to Mr. Koenen, who has been certified by Carnegie Mellon to teach the course.
