Two weeks ago, the St. Robert Bellarmine Robotics Club hosted other Catholic schools in the Catholic Schools Robotics Showcase. Our students and parents worked hard to welcome others, share our program, and learn about other robotics clubs in the Catholic Schools. Another part of the showcase was a mini competition in which our seventh and eighth grade VEX teams participated. It was a great success.
