Robotic Clubs are supported by the Foundation at the middle and high school level as well as some elementary schools.
Schools robotics clubs compete in local and regional competitions, with the possibility of advancing to the world competition if their robots perform well.
Students and teachers shared the following:
"...the program is worth so much more than the final product. It's about expeience, hard work, and collaboration. Robotics is consistently the best part of my day. Spending hours after school with close friends, geeking out about a shared passion-project - there's nothing like it." - Student participant
"Robotics is more than just robots: it’s a platform to learn and grow as an individual. Every year we put Issaquah Schools Foundation grant money into an area that will ensure our success and the growth of our message to the community and beyond.... We recently won an Engineering Inspiration award at our competition. This award, one of the highest honors a team can receive, recognizes our team’s success in spreading STEM passion to other robotics teams as well as the community and kids around us." - T. Oney, Graduation Specialist & Robotic Mentor, Liberty High School
It is estimated that over 75% of students participating in high school robotics clubs pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.
