Robotics and Technology Club
 
This semester we established a new robotics and technology club. Robotics combines computer programing, engineering, and good old fashioned team work.  Our club will be competing in six high school level tournaments this school year.  Club members will design, build, program, and learn to pilot their robot over the next few month.
