The CoeBotics programs are an after school program, with the exception of some in class-room sessions at teachers requests. It is a year-round set of programs, which is divided in to two distinct tracks. A Fall section — predominantly focused on the International LEGO League competitions, and a Spring session with many shorter sessions to offer as many students an opportunity to experience Robotics. Within this there are programs for both the jrCoeBotics — K through 2nd grade, and CoeBotics — 3rd through 5th grade students. All of our program operating within a Seattle Public School, follow the appropriate SPS rules. Please read the Program Rules as to how we operate before registering for any of our offerings.
Program Offerings Spring 2013
Program offerings for after school activities are listed for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders under the jrCoeBotics Program, and for the 3rd, 4t and 5th graders under the CoeBotics Program. The current Spring 2013 Schedule is now posted and registration has opened.
New program – Underwater Robotics
This year based on our experience last year participating in the MATE underwater robotics competition, we will also offer a program for students in K – 4th grade to join one of two SCOUT class ROV teams of 6 students each. This program is very mush like the JrFLL and FLL program, however the ROV’s are constructed from raw material, and students will be required to do a significant amount of science as it relates to fluids, buoyancy and pressure. These two teams will work together and meet at Coe as well on select days (Saturdays) at the RobotShop and learn how to use various tools. Parents of students electing to join this team should be prepared to contribute time as well to assist the team. Swimming skills are NOT required – students actually are NOT allowed to enter the water while operating the ROV.
Registration for the SCOUT ROV teams is different, in that you first register your intend to have your student join, after which we will hold a parent / student info meeting and then decide based on team structure, skill level who finally will be able to join the team. This to ensure that both you and the student understand the commitment as well as other safety related issues as to making the team successful.
