Elementary Robotics Club
Students in grades 4-6 meet together to investigate, design, test, and program robotic models to accomplish a variety of tasks. Through our robotics club, PCA students develop an understanding of real world uses for science, technology, engineering, and math.
Middle School Robotics Team
Every week beginning in November a team of middle school students meets to accomplish robotics missions using fully autonomous robots. Their competition season begins in March and can last through May. They compete in the Game Competition at Robofest. To learn more about Robofest, CLICK HERE.
High School Robotics Team
During a six-week period beginning in January, the PCA Robotics High School Team gears up. Students learn to build a robot from a common kit of parts, which typically weighs up to 150 lbs. Engineering mentors, consisting of PCA parents and alumni, guide students through the construction process. The PCA Robotics Team, The Atoms Family,Team 4405, participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) program with more than 68,000 high school competitors. Regional competitions begin in early March with National Championships in April. Participation in Robotics is a great avenue to open opportunities for a college scholarship. You can stay connected to The Atoms Family by following them on TWITTER or FACEBOOK. To learn more about FIRST, CLICK HERE.
