San Jose goes all the way from Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic to the Rigor of Robotics and beyond!

We are very proud to announce that the San Jose SHARKS are taking learning a step beyond under the incredible leadership of a teacher who has been part of the San Jose family for 18 years.  This teacher will be working in concert with Cal Poly University where he has been specially trained to take on the task of teaching our 6th grade students how to build their own robot. 



According to the Cal Poly Website on their community outreach program:

Robotics is increasingly being considered as the fourth “R” of learning, “Reading, wRriting and aRithmatic” that modern-day students must understand to succeed in a highly competitive, technology-driven world. Robotics integrates all STEM fields in way no other subject can cover. Robotics is the mother of all subjects. It integrates mechanical, electrical, electronics, control engineering, computer science, technology, math and science.

Students will discover breakthrough technologies in Robotics and immerse themselves in the most forward-looking discipline of our time.
