As a requirement to do many things in our club, all members and volunteers must be safety trained prior to just about all else. The next couple of weeks are the best opportunity to get trained as time is running out! Please get safety training as soon as you possibly can! Thank you.

On October 17, 2015, the Seven Lakes High School Robotics Club hosted a Girl Scouts Brownie Workshop to help promote science among girls in the community. Over 80 Girl Scout Brownies from local area elementary schools, along with Brownie troop leaders and parent chaperones, gathered at the Robert R. Shaw Center for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) where the girls performed hands-on experiments necessary to earn the Home Scientist Badge.
The Seven Lakes Robotics Club would like to thank all of the participants, volunteers, and the Shaw Center for making this event possible.
design. Each team collaborated on their robot’s size, shape, and operating functions. Students will continue to meet to refine their design and subsequently build their robots in preparation for the competition. Ultimately RoboSpartans will have to decide on one robot to represent Seven Lakes High School at the December 5th VEX Competition. Good Luck VEX RoboSpartans!
Good job team! We did amazing :) Making it to eliminations is a great accomplishment. Bright offseason and future in store for us

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community. The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 6
00+ makers and 75,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, Oslo and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Houston.
15 members from the RoboSpartan team were onsite to demonstrate our robots and meet with other Makers.
