This student run club was established to promote science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics to the youth of the community. Students pursue STEAM, integrate academics, and develop skills for the future. This club was established to promote science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics to the youth of the community. We achieve this by competing in 4 different robotics competitions: VRC, FTC, FRC, and Robofest.

Because of this, much of the school curriculum is adapted and applied to situations we see, and further personal research done by students are carried to incoming members. As a result, no prior knowledge or experience is necessary to join this team.
The team runs continuously throughout the year. Meetings are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the school year. However, we do schedule additional meetings during the school year, winter, and summer. In these meetings, we construct robots, educate members, and document our work. Outside of competition, we assist members in school, celebrate, and demonstrate our robots.
To fully compete, the team can easily spend over $20,000+. To cut down, we engineer our robots to be as cost effective as possible and we recycle all of our materials. However,
