    • Sacred Heart Schools Atherton's First Robotics meeting for 2021-22
Campus Life
Clubs and Activities


A community of students, educators, and thinkers with a common goal; exploring new concepts in STEM and instilling a lifelong love of learning. Started in 2007, the Sacred Heart Robotics team has grown rapidly over the years, and now includes 70+ students from 7th-12th grade. Students compete in both the First Tech Challenge (FTC) and First Robotics Competition (FRC) programs, which introduce students to real-world engineering skills within the framework of different "games" released every year.

Above all, we seek to teach our students the skills and competencies they will need in the real world, while also building a positive community that encourages students to pursue what they are passionate about. In SHP Robotics, students are exposed to a variety of tools and techniques, including but not limited to 3D-printing, laser-cutting, welding, and computer-assisted design. Students also tackle complicated engineering challenges using real-world problem-solving frameworks with peers from all grade levels, in smaller teams of 5-10 for FTC and in an all-team effort for FRC.
