Robots set to invade Chaffey College
November 9, 2013 by Mark
Chaffey College of Rancho Cucamonga will be holding a Robotics Expo for high school and middle school students next week. The free event is open to students in the 7th to 12th grades, and aims to inspire participants to take an interest in the field of robotics.
The expo offers students the chance to interact with robotics in a way they might not have been able to do before. Exhibits include individual and group games of tug-of-war, a robot maze, and an “amazing race”. There will also be a career station for students interested in finding out about the different employment fields into which they can enter by studying robotics. All resources and refreshments are available at no cost to the students and their guardians. There are three chances to participate throughout the day, with two-hour rotations offered at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00 pm.
Though the event is free, students and parents interested in participating are asked to register before the event. Additionally, participants are asked to register for only one rotation. Students in the 7th through 9th grades must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. More information is available on the Chaffey College website.
A free educational event can be difficult to promote, but a local printing company is a great partner for creating vibrant advertising materials that will appeal to the right audience and age group. Flyers based on the event promotional image available on the Chaffey College website would be both easy to have printed and convenient to post around the community.
The expo will arrive on Friday, November 15.
