The GHCHS Robotics team, the Robodox, participates in both the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) and in the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC). Students work in a professional environment where they build robots to compete with and learn valuable STEM knowledge with the help of industry professional mentors. The Robotics team also helps out the local community with its outreach programs, spreading the importance of STEM Education. Last year, the Robodox won the VRC California State competition, and will participate this year in VRC and FRC.

Applications start in the spring semester. Apply on the official team website

About our Competitions
About FIRST Robotics Competition
Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. The season culminates in the FIRST Championship in Houston, Texas.

About VEX Robotics Competition
In the VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April!
