Welcome and Overview
Welcome to Robotics Club!
HP Robotics hopes to inspire students by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. “We want to change the culture by celebrating the mind. We need to show kids that it’s more fun to design and create a video game than it is to play one.” Dean Kaman founder, FIRST.
HP Robotics participates in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) as organized by US FIRST. http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/ftc FTC is an exciting and fun global robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm for science, technology and discovery in young people. FTC is designed for high school students who want to compete head-to-head, using a sports model. Teams of students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Success at the competition is the result of focused brainstorming, dedicated mentoring, project timelines and teamwork. Teams have a first-hand experience in engineering and problem solving.
