This is for serious robotic kids that want to learn about robotics and enter a competition to showcase their design and research.  The team meets twice a week.  These team meetings are mandatory! This is for kids that Robotics is their “thing”!

If you think you might be interested, please send me an email and we will send you an application packet.  Spaces are limited.  This team is for serious kids between the ages of 11-13.  If you think this is something that your child is “wired” to do, please email for an application packet!If you know of someone that does not receive our emails, please forward this to them!  We are looking for a great team again this year!
