NPHS Robotics Club Receives Golden Gear Award
Our Newbury Park High School’s Robotics Club is the proud recipient of the Golden Gear Award! The award was recently announced at the VC STEM Summit hosted by California State University, Channel Islands.
VC STEM seeks to recognize outstanding STEM programs and efforts serving learners in Ventura County. The Golden Gear Award was created to recognize innovative and impactful efforts, like those at NPHS.
In NPHS’s Robotics Club students develop their skills in software, electrical and mechanical engineering and apply their ideas to building real-world robotic devices. The club participates in both the Vex robotics (smaller, but still industrial) and the FIRST robotics (larger industrial robots) competitions. The Club also participates in outreach demonstrations for local middle and elementary schools.
Accomplishments of NPHS Robotics Club alumni include participating in NASA JPL internships during high school because of their involvement in Robotics Club, and some have contributed directly to projects like the Mars Curiosity rover.
Way to go Panthers!!
