REGISTRATION FOR SESSION 3 TECH CLUBS will open January 22nd at 6:00pm 

Registration link: Currently Full and closed for session 3.

Space will be limited for session 3 tech clubs, so to make it equitable for everyone, students will be placed into one club before they are placed into a second club.  If their first choice is no longer available, they will be placed in subsequent choices.  After everyone interested in joining a club is placed, and if space is still available, then students will be offered a second club.  For the remainder of the sessions, we will be running each club 2 days a week so we can do some deeper exploration.  One day a week per club was not allowing students to get into some of the content.  

Registration opens for tech clubs at 6:00pm on Monday January 22nd and closes when spots are filled.  Club rosters For session 3 will be posted on the Mason Club SWIFT site (this page) on January 26th, and a confirmation email will be sent.  Any submissions BEFORE 6:00 on the 22nd will not be received, so please do not register early.

  • Robotics (Tuesday/Wednesday) - Students will learn to design and program robots at various levels. THIS IS A TWO DAY CLUB, and will focus on preparing for the Tacoma School District Robotics Jamboree on May 12th.  Participation in the Jamboree is not required, but is optional if they are interested.  The Jamboree will consist of a few pre-determined challenges, and unknown challenges, and some fun side opportunities for students from different schools to interact.  We are also inviting the US government, Tacoma fire, Tacoma Police, and a few local companies to demonstrate how they use robotics (bomb detection, scouting, drones, etc).
