The Wyoming Robotics Program is a unique learning experience for students in 5th - 12th grades. The program exposes students to real-life engineering, and requires them to design a piece of technology that is capable of withstanding the extreme forces of competition. Students also get exposure to engineering tools like CAD - Computer Augmented Design. In the course of working with industry sponsors and partners, students are able to gain valuable information and familiarity with a range of careers. The Program also gives students a chance to work with a team over an extended period of time, a great way to foster important leadership skills and collaboration skills.

The club is growing and need in additional mentors. The club meets on Tuesday and Fridays each week from 3:10 p.m.- 4:40/5:00 p.m.
Please email: WCS_Robotics@wyomingcityschools.org if interested in being a competition sponsor or club mentor.
This year, the Robotics Club will not only compete in two of the Ohio Xtreme Bot competitions in November and May, they are hosting their own competition in the district in February. Ohio Xtreme Bot Association is assisting WyoBots in hosting their first competition.
WyoBots Robotics Competition is being hosted for students in the southern Ohio and Cincinnati areas. The competition is open to elementary, middle, and high school age groups*. Competitors design and build combat robots that fight in an enclosed arena, and learn great STEM skills in the process.
*1st-12th grade. All robots must be student-built and operated. Elementary age teams should contact event staff prior to registration for additional guidance.
