Program Philosophy

The Seattle Prep Robotics program focuses on teaching students the fundamental skills in teamwork, engineering, system design, programming and project management. By participating in the largest international robotics program - VEX Robotics - our students compete with the best young minds, by building efficient and sophisticated robots which can outperform their peers in fast paced competitions.

Robotics is an intensive year long program, where students are exposed to many of today's industry standard tools and skills including AutoCAD Inventor and RobotC, a sophisticated real-time system control programming language. Students participating in Robotics in high school are often eligible for significant scholarships at prestigious Colleges and Universities.

Robotics Team Website

As part of their bid for a spot at the VEX Robotics World Championships, the Prep Robotics Team built a website showcasing their work.
