|Call for Mentors .... As we prepare for our first competition season Tiger Robotics is seeking Engineering mentors that are willing to work with students on designing, building, and programing a robot to certain specifications. If you are interested in being a mentor to our students, click here to contact Ed Van Haute.|
Tigerbots is an afterschool program for 4th-6th graders focusing on Robotics. Students use Lego Mindstorms kits to build and program autonomous robots that can complete a variety of tasks. Click here for more information about this year's competition. Any questions? Email Stephanie Jordan.
Tiger Robotics is open to all 7-12 grade students which are split into two groups. During the fall semester, students will meet once a week to learn basic design and building techniques as well as basic programing. They compete in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). During the spring semester, the team will compete in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). For this competition the team will be given 6 weeks to design, build, and program a robot to compete in a sports themed arena against other teams. Click here for details on the competition. Any questions? Email Richard Hansen or Ed Van Haute.
