Where future engineers, designers and innovators come to learn and thrive.
We meet after school every Tuesday and Wednesday in the TWHS Robotics Lab (room 170 at the senior campus), in addition to working during SRD classes.
Robotics is currently the only place where TWHS students can truly apply what they have learned from their STEM courses. Robotics applies principles from physics, math, engineering & design, computer science and business classes (to name a few), and allows students a chance to demonstrate what they have learned through a long-term, hands-on project.
The robotics program at TWHS is split into multiple FTC teams. Each team is comprised of multiple sub-teams with their own responsibilities, skills and expertise. Through robotics, students learn how to work cooperatively as a member of several different teams with one common goal, while also gaining knowledge and developing new skills.
TWHS robotics is a student-run organization, with facilitation and support from teacher-mentors. Here students can learn how to effectively and successfully lead a team. Students are given many opportunities to develop and grow into leadership positions throughout their time as a member of the TWHS Robotics program.
