     Collegiate Academy weekly clubs meet each Friday! 
    Robotics Club
    Sponsor: Mrs. Waters
    Email: Jessica.Waters@gcisd.net
    Purpose: The main objective will be to compete in the FIRST Tech Robotics Competition. Students will build the robot, code commands for the robot, and journal activities. Students will spend the Fall Semester making the robot and the Spring Semester competing in competitions.
     
    Career Club 
    Sponsor: Mrs. Jackson
    Email: Lauren. Jackson@gcisd.net
    Purpose: How much time, money, and confusion can be saved if students are exposed to a variety of careers before finishing college? Students change their major less often, finish college sooner, and find more fulfillment in the workplace if they know more about the career outcome they are aiming for. Students will research their career interests and formulate questions for individuals in that field.  Students interview these individuals and learn about their professional life experiences. This club will provide an opportunity for students to leave Collegiate Academy with a clear understanding of their career options and the educational requirements to reach their goal.
