Ways you can help

St. George Robotics Lab programs are offered completely free of charge and we don't have any plans to charge registration fees.

The Robotics Lab is in constant need of expensive equipment that can't be supported by the Sunday school budget. These needs include:

  • Robotics kits to teach the students.
  • Computer lab equipment - Yeah you can't teach Robotics without a Computer lab!!
  • Spare and replacement parts.
  • Misc educational tools.

You can contribute by one of the following means:

  • Cash donation, securely through the paypal button on the top right section of this page.
  • Cash donation to the Church treasurer (please mention Robotics Lab when making a donation)
  • Laptops (both Windows and Mac) in a very good working condition.
  • Volunteer in fundraising activities for the lab.

The educational service offered by this lab is very valuable, if you have middle/high school children or passionate about quality education please consider contributing.

Registration Info and eligibility for Summer 2014

Registration for Summer 2014 program starts in the second half of May. At the moment we are targeting students age 11, 12, and 13 years old. We are also willing to accept students as young as 8 years old with exceptional skills.

Participation will be nomination based by Sunday school teachers. If you are interested in joining please let your Sunday school teacher know and work with them to get the proper paper work done.

The eligibility requirements don't include previous knowledge of Robotics skills, high school grades, or excellent Mathematical skills. Rather we will mainly focus on commitment, Sunday school attendance, and behavior.

You will be working among a small group of buddies in which you will have a crucial role, your commitment to participation in every session and your investment in your partners success is a top priority. We won't be looking for a team of super stars, rather a group of hard working individuals whom are working in harmony.
