Robotics at The SAE School
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
At the SAE School robotics is not just a club, it’s a class. SAE is one of the few schools that offers robotics as an elective course. Since SAE is a project based school, robotics is a natural, meaningful and progressive place for our students to work together. Robotics inspires students to design, create, market, and compete. The SAE School’s team, The Dragon Bots, competes in FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) competitions throughout the school year where FIRST encourages students of all ages to hone their engineering, public speaking, and competitive skills in a manner that puts ethics and morals at the top of every interaction.
For some students, robotics is something that they do in addition to sports and/or clubs; for other students, robotics is their sport. Teamwork, partnership, interdependency and accountability are at the forefront of any successful team sport or business venture. SAE students learn these life skills by being a part of a bigger whole. Our program partners with other schools and younger grade levels to mentor and share our experiences so that together we can all be more successful.
Our Dragon Bots have earned the Recycle for Good Award, competed and advanced through every level of FIRST competitions all the way to the state championship, they placed in the top 25% of GA teams, won against high school teams with more experience, and learned how to do it again bigger and better next year.
To be a Dragon Bot, students become leaders for the team in one of the following 5 categories.
