The New Way to success.advance.progress.
Since 1998, the Technology High School Robotics program has been in existence. A long and storied history, the program is a sub-group of FIRST ROBOTICS. Among the many awards earned, Technology students won the esteemed Chairman’s Award in 2002 for grace and professionalism. This year under the leadership of Mr. Ford and Ms. Skillern, students hope to win the regional championship and extend their success in the national championship. The robotics team strives for steadfast dedication, solidarity and encourages members to develop a philanthropic approach to the community.
The mission of FIRST ROBOTICS is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
Technology High School students are building future leaders in science and technology through the building of robotics.
I was peer pressured by my friends to join the team. I’m glad I joined because I’ve learned many things, and made great friends and connections that will follow me into adulthood. It has been the best peer pressure decision I’ve made.
Robotics is about teamwork, leadership, and creativity. Its not about winning but if we do, it is the reassurance of our hard work.
I have been with the team for 3 years and I’ve made many friends and met people from around the world. It has been and exciting experience to have been part of this team.
