Support NC Robotics as a Sponsor!
The New Castle Area School District Robotics   Team, established in the fall of 2016, is a group   of approximately fifty dedicated high school   students working together to design and build a   variety of robots for VEX Robotics Competitions.   We compete in several competitions throughout   the year and are also involved in various   community activities.  As members of the   Robotics Team, students are able to extend their   knowledge of engineering principles, mechanics,   electronics, programming, computer assisted   drawing, and above all, teamwork.
Out of our twelve robotics teams, six teams of students were able to compete at the Sarah Heinz VEX Robotics Starstruck Competition, 2nd Annual North Allegheny VEX Robotics Starstruck Competition, and the Western Pennsylvania State VEX Robotics Starstruck Competition.  This year New Castle Robotics students are excited to apply knowledge they learned last year to launch their efforts further during VEX Robotics "In The Zone" Competitions! The VEX Robotics Competition is a global program with over 16,000 teams from 40 countries involved. 
Support of our team offers many benefits to the community. Local students will have the chance to learn and develop many new skills. They will be learning not only engineering and design skills, but will also be developing leadership, business, public speaking, coaching, and communication skills. We are looking to provide these students the necessary skills to become the next leaders in our community and beyond.
