WRECK (Whittier Robotics and Engineering Club for Kids) is an amazing amount of fun and also a great way to learn interesting engineering and robotics concepts (without even realizing it!). For those not familiar, WRECK is a PTA run program and is offered to 3rd through 6th graders. Utilizing Lego WeDo kits (3rd and 4th) and new Lego EV3 Mindstorms kits (5th and 6th), we will give interested boys and girls an introduction to robotics and programming. The classes will start with learning basic principles and will culminate in a final project that should be challenging and rewarding. No prior experience required!
Registration is open for Session 2 (5th and 6th Grade) and is limited to 16 students. It starts on January 22nd and classes are Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:30. See HERE for all of the details and to register.

5. Young Rembrandts Winter Session (Volunteer Needed!)
Registration for the winter session of Young Rembrandts is open! Classes are held after school on Tuesdays at Whittier. First class is 1/8. Cost is $110 for an 11 week session.
YB is in need of a second volunteer to share in the responsibility of monitoring the classes. Please email Rachel Carrero at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in helping out! You will receive a discount on your child’s tuition for your time. Whittier requires an in-class volunteer for all after school classes so without your help we cannot offer this class!
