Westwoods Robotics Team

Register Now for Westwood's Robotics Competitive Robotics Team!


Open to 3rd through 5th graders who competed last year, or who have completed a VEX IQ robotics program at Westwoods, during an NMC College for Kids program, or Quarkmine summer camp.

Students will be divided in teams of 4-6 students. Each team will strategize, design, build and program a robot with the goal of participating in two regional VEX IQ competitions this fall. Through these competitions, students will further boost teamwork and in particular, problem-solving abilities. This program is highly student-led, with some guidance from team mentors. 

Practice Schedule: 

Build/practice sessions will be held on Mondays beginning September 23rd from 5:00 - 6:30pm in the Westwoods Art/Music Room. 

*NOTE: If your child participates in a fall sport that conflicts with the early practice dates, the robotics "season" is such that they can still participate. Contact Westwoods Robotics Coordinator, Joan O'Neill to learn more (contact info, below).

Participation Fee: 


*Reduced rates are available for those who qualify for the TCAPS free and reduced meals program. Registration includes use of Westwood's robotics kits, team t-shirts, and registration for competitions.
