Upper St Clair High School

After School Non-Competitive Robotics

The USC High School after school Robotics Club typically meets once a week after school for 1 hour.  This club invites students who are interested in exploring robotics in general.  No experience required.


During these sessions, students experiment with various robotics resources and learn about our diverse and growing robotics community in Pittsburgh.



For the 2023/2024 school year, students will meet on Monday's after school in room 305 until 3:45 PM starting on September 11th.  Students should also keep an eye out for in-school field trips and Lunch & Learns related to robotics.

To join the Upper St Clair High School Robotics Club you can sign up on the JOIN page, sign up at RUSH during the first month of school, or stop by room 305 at any time.  Students can choose their level of involvement based on their interest and schedule as the year progresses.


USC High School students who are looking for a more intense robotics experience can join a FIRST Tech Challenge team through USC Robotics.  These teams will meet for several hours a week in the evening/weekend and are required to have a volunteer parent coach leading each team.  Please visit the the USC Robotics competitive robotics page related to FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) for more information.  Cost is $300 per student.
