High Schools Robotics Program
The Peekskill High School Robotics program, taught by teacher Mr. Carlo Vidrini, is continually gaining momentum!
In addition to expanding the curriculum to include three robotics classes and two telecommunications classes, this year the Robotics lab has also added an X-Carve CNC machine, where students can design a 3D item on a computer, which the machine then creates.
The Robotics program at Peekskill High School boasts two clubs—the junior team, known as the Mechanical Devils, and the senior team known as the Iron Devils.
The PHS Robotics program hosts classes that offer an in-depth exploration of the design process known as the Engineering Design Process, to build a mobile robot. During this process, students will learn key STEM principles such as basic electronics, telecommunications, physics principles and robotics concepts. Several teams will also be involved in head-to-head competitions to inspire and engage students. This modular and project-based curriculum teaches the design process in an engaging, hands-on manner that challenge, motivate and inspire students. Students will also compete in the Rube Goldberg Challenge, the US FIRST FTC Competition and build a drone.
