Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.
FIRST Robotics Competition is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. We call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” build on their teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.There are several organizations that has started to focus on inspiring students to choose careers in Science and Technology. Students at St. Maximilian Kolbe C.H.S. participate annually in these organizations. To find out more about each organization, click the organization below:
