FIRST Robotics - Wildkat Robotiks

Goal of the FIRST Robotics Program in Willis ISD:
 
Our goal is to develop a self-sustaining, student-led robotics program that is accessible to all students, Kindergarten through grade 12, who are willing to learn.
 
Students in the program will grow in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The students will experience principles of design and function through the process of building and programming robots. Students will work collaboratively in a safe environment while developing solutions to the new game or challenge provided by FIRST every year.
 
We will uphold the FIRST gracious professionalism and cooperation both on and off the field for all students and volunteer coaches. We will build student capacity in the invaluable like skills of problem solving and critical thinking, all while having fun.
 
We looking forward to continued expansion of Wildkat Robotiks and the FIRST Robotics program throughout the district at all levels in the near future.
