Competitive Robotics Teams (Grades 7 – 12)

We offer a number of competitive robotics teams for students to join – no experience required! These teams all include skill development in coding, mechanical build and design, marketing, business, and leadership. To learn more about the different teams, their practice schedule, and the different levels of competition available, visit the robotics teams webpage.

Coding Clubs (Grades 5 – 12)

Coding clubs run in two sessions annually – a fall/winter session and a spring session – and provide weekly coding opportunities for any student in grades 5 – 12. Each year both beginner and intermediate coding options are available in a variety of languages along with both co-ed and girl focused clubs. Clubs meet one evening per week at the STEM Center. Technology is provided on site for any students who need it. Fall coding clubs typically run October – January and spring coding clubs typically run March – May. Past languages include block-based coding such as Scratch and scripted coding including Python and JavaScript.
