Dubbed a 'varsity sport for the mind' Highland School's competitive FIRST® Robotics Team combines the excitement, teamwork, and competition of a sport with the rigors of science and technology.
Under strict rules, limited resources, and a tight timetable, teams comprised of students and led by professional mentors are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real world” engineering as a student can get. Interested in learning more? Check out any of the areas below:
