State competition is scheduled for February 15, 2020.To be a part of robotics you will need to be fully committed. Please make arrangements with your team if you need to miss a meeting. If a student misses three VEX meetings, he/she may be replaced.
  • Teamwork and sportsmanship are essential in this program.
  •  A $20 donation is requested to help pay for competition fees, registration, and a team shirt. Additional donations are appreciated.
  • Each 4 person team will be responsible for building and programming a robot and taking care of their own supplies, including a robotics kit, as well as additional pieces that have been purchased by the school. The equipment is expensive, and students are expected to keep everything in excellent condition and use the supplies appropriately.
