Robotics Club (September - December)
Anyone can join the club. It is for students who want to experiment with robotics and have fun spending time with other students who want to do the same. Students will be given access to VEX Robotics kits and be introduced to various challenges. Club members are not required to attend robotics competitions but are encouraged to do so if they are interested in participating in competitions in the future.
Competitive Robotics Team (September - March)
Students who are interested may try out for the team. If interested, speak with Mr. Johnston. Team assignments can change throughout the entire school year.
We currently have two officially registered teams: 7676A and 7676B. The team letters do not indicate the abilities of the team (it’s not “A-string” or “B-string” - they are just letter designations to indicate it is two different teams in the same organization).
Each team may also have students listed as alternates. Additionally, sixth-grade students may be selected to act as an intern on each team (they should take this position seriously, they will be responsible for carrying on the legacy of that team in the following year’s competitions).
Team Member Requirements:
Must attend ALL scheduled meetings and competitions
Must be in a CTE class such as CCE, PoAE, or Dollars and Sense(enrolled for first or second semester)
Must not be failing any classes (Excellent grades preferred)
Required to purchase a team t-shirt (fundraiser) ~$20
Meets Tuesdays/Thursdays from 3-5pm (always check the calendar for updates)
Various Competitions on Saturdays throughout the school year (check the calendar for scheduled events, more are added as the season progresses)
Team members must meet requirements and be selected
Possibilities of travel if the team advances through competition
If you are interested in trying out for the robotics team - email Mr. Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to him in person in room 217.
