Cherokee County's Only Robotics Team
To provide students with a unique opportunity to learn technical skills in a business setting. From organization, design, engineering, safety, accounting, marketing and outreach, our team is a real business with a management team and real challenges that go with it. During competitions, we learn strategy, partnerships and we drive hard to win while maintaining gracious professionalism.
Our program tirelessly demonstrates to students what hard work, dedication, grit, and passion can do when focused. Our inspiration knows no bounds as we constantly strive to educate students in places previously forgotten by traditional means. We reach out into our community to educate students on how many opportunities are available to them in STEAM fields.
Our team includes students with diverse backgrounds and financial situations. In order to continue providing this opportunity to generations of children, we need every bit of help we can get. That's where our partners come in. Donations of any kind help create this outlet of intellectual energy and take us to local and national competitions. We are a non-profit so we can grow and serve even more students in the future.
We participate in a program known as FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). FRC is an annual robotics program where high school students design, build, test, and compete with 120lb robots. FRC’s central focus is the game, which changes annually, always presenting new challenges to students. Different games present different challenges from year to year, resulting in highly specialized robots to compete efficiently.
We are world's only FRC team that's also an Interact Club. Business mentors from the Rotary Club of Towne Lake teach entrepreneurship and management skills. Together, our officers manage the business side of the team, from accounting and fundraising, to outreach.
Our members actively participate on Rotary's charity events and gain valuable volunteer hours while having fun.
We call FIRST® Robotics Competition a unique sport where every kid who plays can "turn pro." High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
