My Students

Over 65% of our student population receives free or reduced-price lunch. Inspiring these students to overcome their economic/social handicaps and succeed in the engineering process is truly a worthy endeavor.

Our First Robotics Competition team designs and builds articulated robots!

We have a wide range of students on our FRC Robotics team from Freshmen to Seniors. Our students work numerous hours after school to design and build robots for an annual international competition. They also organize an annual blood drive for the local community.

My Project

Our robotics team, Ramageddon Robotics, competes in an annual robotics competition. FIRST Robotics Competition, combines the thrills of sports with the intellects of engineering. Students on our team have six weeks to design, build, program, test, and drive a robot in a highly competitive engineering sport game.

Students have a very limited opportunity to showcase their talents due to the high cost associated with competing in these events.

Normally, our team is only able to compete in a single world class event per year. With the funding secured from this project we will be able to travel to a second international event.
