Robotics

Robotics is a varsity sport for the mind!

Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits a team of students start the journey to build a task specific robot. The team is challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand” to market, learn teamwork skills, and build/program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real- world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer mentors from engineering, leadership, and all walks of life lend their time and talents to guide students on their journey of discovery.
