Registration for the 2023-24 season has ended but check back here in the fall of 2024 join for the 2024-25 season.

Joining the robotics team was one of the best decisions I made in high school. I met a great group of friends and learned a lot of valuable technical and soft skills. This program opened many doors for me that I would never have had. Anyone who has interests in engineering or business should try joining the robotics team and join a great community of like minded students.
