UHS Robotics Club

STEM for everyone, because we put FIRST ideals first



Union High School Robotics Club

Formed in 2012, Union Robotics has grown from a small group of motivated students to an expansive club offering opportunities to any student, regardless of experience. We pride ourselves in our ambition to spread STEM throughout our whole community. Union Robotics is comprised of both a competition team, Geared Reaction, and our club. Geared Reaction works throughout the year to design, engineer, and program a robot for FTC competition, building connections throughout FIRST. The Union Robotics Club allows all students to learn the principles of robotics, with a 2019 - 2020 focus on creating a prosthetic leg for a local dog. Our club may be perfect for you especially if you are committed to many activities at Union, but still seek to explore robotics!
