  • What are the classes like?

    In robotics you wont be taught by teachers, you will learn things by yourself and taught basic things by veteran students. Any mentors in the class will be there to watch and give advice but the will never work on the robot for you.

    Sometimes you will have to travel far depending on who hosts the competition. Usually we have 1 out of state game for FRC(First Robotics Competition) and one local game. Vex games are local and usually we do 2 per year.

    Posted by Anthony Pena on 10/25/2019

    Hopefully everyone on the team can make it, but it depends on the schedule of the student and how many parents can drive students to the competition.
