"...to create a world where science and technology are celebrated...where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes." - Dean Kamen, Founder FIRST

"Our students begin computer coding/programming in Kindergarten and continue through to 11th grade. After School engineering & robotics lets them take their knowledge to new heights..."
-Aisha Faison, Robotics coach

New Hope Academy is proud to be:

Elementary/Middle School Robotics:

4th-9th grades
Tuesdays and Wednesdays 4pm-5:30pm    
New Hope Academy's  after-school robotics & engineering  club gives students a chance to explore technology, design, public-speaking, robotics and engineering in a relaxed, fun environment. Students compete in FLL competitions, drone competitions, video-game competitions. All the while completing hands on projects & researching real world problems. Students design, build and program robots & drones. Explore the engineering process and various engineering fields. Take engineering related field trips. While collaborating and researching solutions to real-world problems that they later present to a panel of judges.


Do students actually build robots?
Yes, students design or pick a design and build their own robots using lego EV3 parts. Students also have to design additional parts or "add-ons" in order to solve game missions.

Do Students program?
Yes, while students also learn programming in technology class. They have the opportunity to put their knowledge of coding to work to solve game missions.

What programming language do students use?
RobotC, a C-based programming language.

Upper School Robotics :

Upper school Robotics is offered as an elective (depending on student interest). Upper School students also mentor our after-school robotics/engineering teams. Mentors share expertise and experience gained from years past.
If you are interested in working with VEX robotics please contact Ms.Faison.
