Meeting 2 - October 9, 2018
Tours were conducted.
First, Robotics teams vary from 4 per team to up to 60
per team. Clear Creek ISD's team, which practices at NASA, is one of the
largest with 60-80 students.
The ability to have an actual facility where K-8
students can come visit, and visualize what they team does, will play a large
role in participation. We have found with other programs, a dedicated space
with a presence does make a difference in participation.
Yes, the budget does include furniture, fixtures, and
equipment. However, the exact equipment will not be determined until the
building is in design to be sure that we select the most appropriate
equipment for the team.
1-2, depending upon space that will be needed for the
tool room and secure storage of large equipment. Again, the actual design of
the interior will be done once it has been funded to ensure the best design
for the team.
This space could potentially open up STEM classrooms
currently used for the high school Robotics class for more Project Lead the
Way courses as the STEM Academy grows, as well as opening up the lab that is
currently being used by the team. However, the decision of the location for
this facility has not been made.
We don’t have any portables at REL, but by opening up
space for more students, it can prevent the need for portables in the future.
Moving in a portable costs approximately $60,000, not
including the cost of the portable or maintenance and utilities while in use. The PASA report demonstrates
REL is below functional capacity.
