Minecraft is a sandbox video game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. The creative and building aspects of Minecraft enable players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including survival mode where the player must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build with and the ability to fly, an adventure mode where players can play custom maps created by other players, and a spectator mode where players can fly around and clip through blocks, but cannot place or destroy any. The PC version of the game is renowned for its third-party mods, which add various new items, characters, worlds, and quests to the game​.

Besides capability of swimming an underwater robot also has multi DOF manipulators and end effectors on these arms of various types to perform underwater tasks such as construction, salvage, rescue and repair.[1] They can also help in collecting items that are deeply submerged inside the sea, used by the military and scientists mostly. ​

Dear Parents,

We are 21st Century Community Learning Centers, an initiative dedicated to providing student support before and after school. 21C is excited to kick off our 5th year at Rundlett Middle School.

Afternoon sessions are comprised of snack time and blocks of programming. Transportation home is available in the form of the 4:30 late bus and the 5:30 21C bus. (The 4:30 late bus does not operate on Thursdays and the 5:30 bus does not operate on Fridays.) 21C will continue to offer morning academic support, 7:15 to 8:15 while simultaneously the Concord YMCA will offer morning enrichment and recreational activities 7:00 to 8:15 (Please look for the separate YMCA registration for this morning option.)

One of the greatest aspects of the 21C program is flexibility. For a one time nominal $50 fee, students may attend as frequently as they like. This can be ideal for today’s busy, 21st Century student whose schedule might change week to week.

Studies have shown that the hours of 3 to 6PM are typically the most vulnerable time of the school day for adolescents. Students that participate in afterschool programming are more likely to succeed academically and build meaningful relationships with both peers and staff members.

They spend more time reading and demonstrate improved standardized test scores in both reading and math. 21C at RMS offers a variety of programming highlighted by academic enrichment through our fully staffed homework club with computer and internet access. In addition, we offer activities that stimulate both physical and critical thinking skills. We take pride in encouraging student driven programming which allows for more choices based on interest.

Some of our most successful clubs last year were created by our students, including our new Lego Robotics Club and Aeronautics. Other popular choices include Art Explorations, Cooking Matters, the Sea Perch Underwater Robotics program, Minecraft and Open Gym.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. We look forward to meeting you and having your child as part of our community.

Parents, please take a moment to complete the following survey. We greatly appreciate your feedback and suggestions.

Why I always look forward to coming to 21c:
After a day in school I'm always tired but, I have energy in me and I need to have fun. I come to 21c. They always have the clubs that are so fun even when you might think that they are not, they are because you find a new experience in something that you might have not thought about doing. Sometimes I need help with my homework and I know my parents can't help me with, so I go to the homework club and I know someone will help me. So after that I don't have to worry about doing my homework wrong. Whenever I come and I don't like one of the clubs, I know that there is a different option for me. But no matter out I have to participate. So if you're thinking about joining 21c, you are making a amazing decision. You might not get convinced with what I'm saying but you never know unless you try. Take this from a 21c member.

Could your son or daughter use additional hands on help with homework? The 21C Homework Help Club runs every school day before and after school. Here, students can get one on one help from teachers and high school staff on anything from Math and Language Arts to Social Studies, Science and anything in between. The Homework Help Club is flexible. Students can come as often as they need. They are then welcome to participate in a variety of other activities upon completion of their work or can head home to enjoy the evening, knowing that their work is done. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity by registering your child for the 21C Program.
