Summer Classes - 2021

These courses are aimed at students who are rising 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th graders and organized by our FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team RoboLords. Most courses are planned for once a week (1 hr each), though some courses like Java/Python will be twice a week. The courses will be a total of 8 weeks in summer starting from the week of Jun 27th. Please sign up by selecting the courses you are interested in and your availability during the summer. We will collect all the responses and find a time suitable for all the students and the tutors.
