Robotics Programs

Friday Mornings, 9:00 - 10:30, $75 per month

Students join the global FIRST robotics community, and they move past Lego to construct more advanced metal machines.  The programming is more challenging, and the game more sophisticated.  In this competition, your students are breaking into new territory in their journey to becoming engineers! 

First Robotics Tech ChallengeGrades 9-12
