Louisville Centrons Robotics Club

The Louisville Central High School's robotics club started out in 2015 with help from a NASA grant given to the Jefferson County Public School system to assist the district incorporate competitive robotics into its curriculum. We have grown into the district's largest robotics organization, incorporating three VEX teams and one FIRST team. We are dedicated to providing our students with a rigorous STEM education and to prepare them for the jobs of the future.

The Innovation Academy will be divided into four specific areas:

  1. Lounge Area: Chosen to model a typical college environment, this space inspires collaboration and brainstorming and allows students to work in a comfortable environment.

  2. Conference Space: This is professional space for students to share ideas with business and industry. Students are encouraged to invite the broader community into the classroom, and the conference room will model standard business practices.

  3. Makerspace Area: This is a common area where students have access to tools, parts, robotics, etc.

  4. Classroom Space: This is a traditional area for direct instruction.
