Who are we?
The Gearheadz is an after-school program where LHS students get hands-on experience with all aspects of building a robot. Team members work together with professional engineers from industry to dream up, design, build, test, and drive a robot that they then compete with and against high school teams as part of the world-renown FIRST program. The program’s main season begins in early January and runs through March when the team competes in regional competitions against teams from as far away as Canada, Mexico and even Australia. The team is hosted by the LHS Math Science and Technology (MST) academy but students from all of the high schools academies are welcome. Previous experience in robotics is not required – anyone with an interest and enthusiasm in trying new things and building cool stuff is welcome.
