      Robotics: Lower School beginnings through High School winnings

      Students are intrigued by technology and fearless in applying new skills in robotics. Starting in Lower School, girls and boys learn to work together to brainstorm, build, and program LEGO NXT Mindstorm robots. Continuing in Middle School, students engage in more sophisticated elements of NXT programming and building, ultimately working towards participation in the FIRST LEGO League competition.

      Robotics participation in the High School has soared significantly since its inception. Twice participating in Regionals for the BEST competition, the all-girl robotics team ventured into FIRST competition in 2015.
