We are the RoboSpartans!
In 2012 the RoboSpartans was organized by Curtis Alden, a Seven Lakes High School teacher, under the name of FRC team 4639, or Seven Lakes Robotics. In our first year, we had a membership of about 15 students. We started off building on school grounds and used SLHS themes to market the team. Since then, we have moved our build-site to the Robert Shaw Center for STEAM and now have over 100 current members with more joining each year.
Seven Lakes High School Robotics (also known as the RoboSpartans) is a multicultural team of students engaged in bringing a passion for math, science, engineering and computing to our community and school, by participating in yearly FIRST® and VEX Robotics competitions. Working alongside adult mentors and volunteers, student members obtain technical skills and gain knowledge in other areas, such as project management, team building, leadership, and communications. Through these experiences, we are learning important skills that will aide us in becoming professionals. Additionally, the team seeks to educate and inspire others through various events in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Our team competes in robotics competitions, most notably those organized by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
The “I” in FIRST stands for "Inspiration," and one mission of the RoboSpartans is for every team member to inspire the next generation of science, technology, engineering, and math professionals. By giving students exposure to real-world engineering opportunities, the team helps to develop communication and leadership skills, foster self-confidence, and provide a unique opportunity for high school students.
The RoboSpartans have enjoyed the support of an entire community of education and business leaders. It is our responsibility to give back to the community by educating young people, being good stewards of our resources, practicing Gracious Professionalism, and sharing our talents with others. We have built our culture around selflessness and will continue to uphold that belief.
