Our HS team is made of 5 boys, grades 9-11 from different public, public charter and home schools from across Washington DC. All of them are new to VEX & robotics as their respective schools never had STEM programs and being from under served, at-risk communities made robotics participation impossible until now. In spite of this 4 of the members are on the National Honor Society and 1 of them has special needs (Dyslexia & Processing Disorder) and has been an enthusiastic & equal participating member of this team. They're all looking forward to their inaugural year of robotics!


This is our first season in VEX and our parent-coaches are eager to get as much support and training as possible.


Sadly, we don't have any sponsors nor do we have any parents with grant writing experience to assist us in securing funds.
