Breakthrough Bots

Middle school robotics team in East Garfield Park, Chicago

I have been coaching a robotics club since early 2017. The kids learn basic programming using JavaScript (Microsoft MakeCode) as well as Lego’s custom language. Each year I teach a few intro classes in the winter and spring, and then have intense competition during the fall.

I am always looking for volunteers - you do NOT have to be a programmer to join in! Check out the Breakthrough Bots volunteer page.
