Our Core Values
Focus on the mission, and not the condition.
Welcome to Revealing Robots, Embracing Legacy’s Robotics program!
This program focuses on teaching science, technology, engineering and math education concepts while preparing youths for competition. In its first season, our robotics team won a number of awards, most notably the Nature's Fury, Minotaur Team Choice (Most Impressive Team) Qualifying Tournament, and has since been continually recognized for their sportsmanship and creativity. For those youths who are new to Robotics or are not yet ready for competition, we offer a Robotics Club which serves to teach the foundation of Robotics and acts as a feeder program into our competitive team.
