Robotics overview

Sacred Heart Robotics

The program is open to all students of all ages and abilities. Sacred Heart's mission is to educate the whole child, and the Robotics program accomplishes this by:
  • instilling a life long love of learning
  • making students passionately curious about the world
  • emphasizing the importance of communication and teamwork
  • promoting critical thinking in an atmosphere of wise freedom
  • seeing failure as an integral component to achieving success
  • using our skills and resources to help others who are less fortunate

We believe that passion, curiosity, and learning are fueled by robotics competitions, as well as offering a course in the Creative Inquiry Department for students to expand their horizons and build a project of their own choosing.

The Sacred Heart GatorBots had an outstanding weekend of competition at The First Tech Challenge Tournaments at Sequoia HS and Menlo School. 

On Saturday, the team earned the prestigious Rockwell-Collins Innovation award for unique and consistent design, as well as for making it to the final match of the event (and finishing 2nd place overall). On Sunday, they again showed an impressive standing, making it to the quarter finals and being a finalist for the PTC Design Award. 

This is SHP Robotics' rookie year in this event. Congratulations to the team on a job well done Andrew Zhu (Captain), Russ Roberts (mentor), Antonio Caceres, Danny Carlson, Garrett Pinkston, Laine Miller, Henry Whittle, Roger Brockett, Sean Morrissey, and Jack Brudos.

If you would like to be a part of the momentum, we will be having an informational meeting for our next competition in Jan-Feb: FIRST Robotics Competition on Wednesday 12/9 at lunch in the DREAM Lab (McGanney 104).
