Robotics is a hands-on, innovative and fun program designed to engage students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) while developing social/emotional skills for teamwork and collaboration. The focus is on getting students excited about acquiring skills that will help them in college and the workforce.
This year there were 81 middle school students, who worked on project teams to build and program robots and present unique solutions for the 2018-19 FIRST LEGO League competition. The teams won multiple awards at regionals, and three advanced to the state championships in Denver. At the high school level, 17 students acquired project management, CAD, mechanical engineering, and java coding skills to design, build and operate robots for competition. Both teams won multiple awards at regional and state competitions, and one advanced to the world competition in Houston, Texas.
