Fall Competition has begun. Join our mailing list to be notified about January Introductory and Advanced Classes
Video, why robotics is important!
Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned expert, the VEX IQ Challenge provides a challenge with multiple ways to achieve success, from scoring 1 point to 100. Each success provides a platform for the roboticist to achieve and attain the next level. Robotics competitions are a cooperative environment for children to learn about themselves and from others. With multiple competitions each season open to all, the opportunity presents itself to learn and improve designs, programming and strategy. This is the engineering circle. A process of ideas, building and evaluation which goes on for years.
While this year's competition is well under way, we will be offering classes in January that will teach the kids programming and building skills that they will be able to put into affect in next years challenge. Registration begins at the end of November. Sign up to our mailing list and we will let you know when enrollment for the January session is opened.
Balls will be flying. The following video is the VEX IQ Challenge for this year.
Join the Revolution
Robotics brings STEM to life. It is a fascinating platform that requires problem solving both in a cerebral logical method (programming) and in a physical way (mechanical engineering). Throughout it all we constantly show how mathematics, science, and engineering principles are needed to solve the problems. Our goal is to fuel enthusiasm for learning every chance we get.
Our innovative, hands-on classes are rooted in our philosophy of 1 Student/1 Robot/1 Computer.
Think your child might like our program? Test your child with the Hour of Code. If you have to rip him or her away from the computer, your child will love our classes!

Meet the NEW Robot
In September 2013, our entire school moved to the New VEX IQ Robot for grades 4 and up. We couldn't be happier with this new robot. Every student who has had experience with both our new VEX IQ robot and Lego Mindstorms has preferred the VEX IQ robot, from a programming aspect as well as a build aspect. It simply is better!
- Better programming language (Modkit based on Scratch)
- More motors and sensors (up to 12 combined) build bigger more complex robots
- A clear progression to VEX (high school robotics)
- Remote control!!! In addition to autonomous programming, we can now add remote control. What kid doesn't want to play just a little with their newly built creation? Plus, it gives us a lot more that we can teach in terms of integrating sensors and user control. It's just really cool!
Our goal is to advance your kids in the robotics world, giving them tools that they will use for the rest of their lives.
