Join the Team!

join Being part of a robotics team is an experience unlike any other. Besides the expected math, physics, engineering and programming to which students are exposed, our team highly values teaching administrative skills such as writing and public speaking. We are proud of the well-rounded teenagers that make up our team.

Here are just a few things members can learn and work on as part of the Kinetic Knights:

  • Programming
  • Physics
  • Drafting

  • Making and managing a budget
  • Welding
  • Electrical
  • Public Speaking

  • Web Programming
