The Newman Robotics team formed in late Fall, 2014 in response to the school’s Engineering Club’s (a group of 14 students; half boys, half girls) desire to compete in robotics competitions. We dubbed ourselves “Architechi Newmani'' and immediately jumped into building a robot to compete in FIRST Tech Challenge. In spite of being novices, our efforts culminated in our team winning the Motivate Award at the competition. We continue to compete in FIRST Tech Challenges and eagerly anticipate new challenges and new robots.
To provide a low-pressure environment to inspire students to become leaders in STEM as well as to develop important skills such as: communication, self-confidence, and leadership.
