The purpose of our Top Dawg Robotics Team is to focus on mentoring young boys using STEM program in partnership with First and Lego League and to provide a Robotics Team for our service area.
With the STEM Program we have adult coaches as students apply STEM concepts and their imaginations to develop solutions to resolve real-world challenges. The FIRST LEGO League students research a real world engineering challenge, develop a solution and compete with LEGO based robots of their own design.
