For the second year in a row, an FRA robotics team has qualified for the Worlds Competition. Team Rastafarian Fire won the Build Award and was a finalist in the VEX State Championships on Saturday to qualify for the Worlds Competition, which is held in Louisville, Kentucky, in April.
The state-of-the-art Innovation Lab is a 2,000-square-foot space providing a dynamic, collaborative learning environment where students are able to use hands-on experiences and technology to build, create, design, and problem solve.
The Innovation Lab serves students across our campus - from growing the popular lower and middle school robotics program to innovations classes and upper school robotics and Science Olympiad competitions.
The Innovation Lab features:
- Two 3D Printers
- Laser Cutter
- 3D Carver
- Advanced Interactive Projection System
- Robotics Arena
- Two Advanced Drones
- 3D Scanner
- Full Woodshop
Congratulations to the upper school robotics teams, who sent three teams to last weekend's White House VEX Invitational in Memphis. All three teams advanced into the elimination bracket, and two teams went head to head for the championship.
FRA hosts students from JT Moore, Oliver, and Croft Design Middle Schools for weeklong camps in its Innovation Lab.
