Robotics Club

Central Lyon high school science teacher Bill Allen guides our growing robotics team in building a robot that competes with surrounding schools. The popular club has expanded to an elective class that students can take for credit. The club had enormous success during its first years, qualifying for state in 2013 and 2014. 

Robotics Team   

“Robotics has taught me many different life skills. A few examples are communicating with teammates and/or alliances, being a professional when it comes to either winning or losing, scouting to see what is working for other people, and probably most importantly leadership. I have been in robotics since my freshman year and overall, it has been a great and fun experience. The only reason I chose it was I needed to fill my schedule and I would go back and make that decision 10/10 times.” ~ written by CL alumni Elijah Jansma
