The AMS Robotics Team provides a "real world" opportunity for Apex Middle School students to learn and utilize S.T.E.M. principles. Members of the Robotics Team design and build Vex Robots to compete at the local, state, and international levels. In order to achieve our goals, each team member must dedicate a significant amount of time to the program both in school and at home.
The members of the team are selected through an application process that is based on a wide variety of aspects. These aspects include the student's leadership ability, group work, motivation, and relationship with peers.
The team is proud to be sponsored by several companies, including EMC and Vex Robotics. Due to the extensive costs of robot components, the team is always looking for additional sponsors or donations to provide resources for its members.
