HCA established a FIRST (FLL) Robotics team in 2012 for students in 6th-9th grade. Since that time our teams have done very well, competing in the State Championships twice. We are now in the process of expanding our robotics program for 10th-12th grade students. This new program is based on VEX Robotics. We are currently seeking sponsors to help start this program for the 2018-2019 school year. Please download the following brochure for further details.
