在圣. 安德鲁的, we are a robotics program that inspires students to be math, 科学, and technology leaders by building skills, 激励创新, and fostering self-confidence, 沟通, 和领导能力. We participate in the FIRST 机器人 League, a program powered by a mission-driven global robotics community and evidence-based programs designed to ignite curiosity and encourage exploration.
St. 安德鲁的 FIRST 机器人 teams are made up of Grades 2-3 and 4-5 in the 较低的学校; Grades 6-8 in the 中学; and Grades 9-12 in the 上学校. 每年, FIRST 机器人 teams are challenged to research a real-world problem, then create an original solution for that problem, plus design and build a robot to accomplish “missions” on a competitive playing field. The theme changes each season, requiring teams to be extraordinarily creative. 机器人 teams meet weekly in the Fall and Winter.
