Students combine engineering and science to design parts, construct systems, and operate automated machines.
Master the Future
Northwood School's robotics programs transform students from passive users to active creators. Through introductory and applied courses, and participation in a robotics co-curricular, students learn engineering, design, coding, and programming concepts essential to the field. They then use these concepts to design, fabricate, wire, and program functioning robots.
The end result? An automated, mobile machine piloted by wireless controls built entirely by students who possess the scientific knowledge, mechanical skills, and practical experience to improve and advance technology.
Test Your Skills
After students master introductory concepts in the classroom, they can choose to be a part of one of our robotics teams which competes against other high schools in the FIRST division.
Here’s what the robotics program delivers:
- A combination of science and engineering instruction through hands-on projects.
- The opportunity to design and build robots with LEGO MINDSTORMS, Hummingbird, VEX and FIRST robotics kits.
- A chance to use logic skills and programming languages to automate machines.
Northwood’s robotics program helps students develop the skills necessary to create their own machine using artificial intelligence. All skill levels welcome.
