The Western Albemarle High School (WAHS) Robotics Club was founded in 2011. 
The club has 30 students, who are split up into 3 teams, that meet regularly on Tuesday and Thursday after school to build, program, and test robots to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge.  Currently, the club is in its 6th season. Off-season, students participate in prototyping, workshops and outreach events to promote science, technology, engineering and math in the community.
