The Firestone Robotics Club is proud to present the Third Annual Dan Spak Memorial Robotics Competition.
Dan Spak founded our club in 2011 as an after school opportunity for students to explore engineering concepts beyond the classroom. The first robot our club ever built was powered by pulling a string. Since then, our teams have won awards at many regional competitions, States and Worlds. Dan Spak was named Ohio's VEX Robotics Coach of the Year in 2019. On April 11, 2020, Mr. Spak passed away unexpectedly. We will continue to honor his vision for our club and the VEX Robotic community throughout Ohio and beyond. Thank you Mr. Spak. We miss you.
