West Seattle Blog… | Local students invited to open houses to learn about Skunk Works Robotics
This week and next week, the Skunk Works Robotics program organizes open days for students interested in participating. They are based a bit south of West Seattle but have many attendees from our area. Here is the invite:
Skunk Works Robotics is a competitive robotics team based in the Highline area. It is affiliated with 4-H and accepts members from all schools, including homeschoolers. The team uses workspace courtesy of Highline Public Schools.
The Skunk Works team has been in the Highline area for 16 years and has won numerous awards as part of FIRST Robotics. Skunk Works is looking for new members who want to develop and use their skills in CAD, public speaking, programming, graphic design, statistical analysis, wiring, marketing or parts manufacturing to compete at the highest levels of robotics in the high school. The team operates like a business and students learn marketable skills and teamwork under the supervision of mentors.
Fall meetings are held twice a week. The team meets 4 days a week and on Saturdays when the competitive season begins in January. We are currently accepting students in grades 8-10.
Skunk Works will have two open house sessions, September 1 and September 8. Both will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. We ask that a parent or guardian also attend this meeting. Please fill out this Google form and indicate the date you wish to visit.
