Robotics

Central’s robotics team, The RoboLancers, is one of the largest student clubs at Central High School, with over 100 members! The RoboLancers build three robots per year from the bottom up to compete against other schools in the city, state, country, and world. Many of our RoboLancer alumni go on to pursue careers in the STEM field. Please help the RoboLancers get to the world championship!

Central’s Robotics has three teams: FLL-FIRST Lego League is the teams that mentor younger robotics teams at other schools, FTC-The first year robotics kids (FIRST Technology Challenge) Crimson and Gold teams, FRC-(FIRST Robotics competition) -our older, seasoned robotics kids. FIRST-For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. So there are different levels of knowledge and building of the robots.
