Beginning with the 2017-18 school year Central Magnet will begin competing in FIRST Robotics. This competition is a new venture for Central, but is also a worldwide competition for students. Schneider Electric is our corporate sponsor and will be working with our students to create the robot for the competition in the Spring of 2018.
Membership to this team will be by invitation/interest only for this first year. It will generally be reserved for engineering students or those who have shown significant success in previous robotics competitions. If you have an interest in spending a lot of time after school working for at least 12 weeks to prepare for the competition in March of 2018, then you need to speak to Mr. Guthrie directly.
NOTE: There are some costs involved that will include hotel, food, and travel expenses for up to 3 days that will not be covered by the team. Team members will be responsible for covering those costs.
More information will come as it become available. If you have questions, please speak directly to Mr. Guthrie or email him at email@example.com
If you are interested in joining the team, you need to read and complete the application below. This must be turned in no later than September 26, 2017.
