The Rock Academy Robotics Team will be providing a demonstration of its robot at the Ronald McDonald House on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon. The team will have some time for kids to help program the robot and actually get some driving time in with the robot.
The Rock Academy participates in FIRST Robotics, which is a national robotics program for youth. The mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology. The Rock Academy is coming to The Ronald McDonald House to encourage other kids their age to participate in something they may not have as an option at their school or in their community.
The event will take place at the Ronald McDonald House South Field, 2929 Children's Way, in San Diego.
