2024/2025 USC Robotics Registration Information

Updated: Jul 10

USC Robotics Club currently offers a variety of opportunities for grades 5 through 12. (Don't worry elementary schools, we plan on doing outreach at all elementary schools and hope to create a FIRST LEGO League Explore program soon.)


This post will give an overview of the different programs available at the middle school and high school level as well as how to register.


MIDDLE SCHOOL ROBOTICS

In USC, Mr. Matt Henderson runs the non-competitive robotics program at Boyce Middle School while Mr. Andrew Bowers runs the non-competitive robotics program at Fort Couch Middle School. Non-competitive robotics is typically a commitment of one hour per week for a semester. Mr. Matt Wilson oversees the middle school competitive robotics group that participates in FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Challenge. Competitive robotics is typically a commitment of the first semester with a minimum of 4 hours of practice in the evenings per week along with weekend competitions. See the below graphic for a comparison of the two programs.



On July 10th a USC Robotics Open House was held with middle school families from 6:00-7:30 pm. Here is the slide deck shown at the open house with more information regarding the various programs.


Registration for all USC Robotics programs begins on July 11th at 8am through our EventBrite page. Please be sure to select the proper program - Boyce Non-Competitive, Fort Couch Non-Competitive, or Middle School Competitive FLL (grades 5-8).


HIGH SCHOOL ROBOTICS

At USC High School, non-competitive robotics is run by Mr. Blaise Cackovic. Non-competitive robotics only meets once a week for one hour and has some flexibility regarding opportunities to interact with. Competitive robotics is overseen by Mrs. Tracy Smith with several teams participating in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). Each of these teams are coached by parent volunteer coaches and mentors and meet various days of the week for a minimum of six hours each week. See the below graphic for a comparison of the two programs.
