Bearbotics is designed to be the highest-impact extracurricular STEM activity for LPSD/D38 high school students. The objective is STEM enrichment and achievement, with a special focus on engineering. Each year's program is run like a large project with related opportunities to grow skills in leadership, teamwork, project management, machining and fabrication, fundraising, communication and community outreach. This program is excellent real-world experience to help prepare for the next stage in each student's path -- whether that be college, a skilled trade or another STEM-oriented path.

Bearbotics builds competitive robots: large, powerful, complex machines to play challenging games that change each year. These robots are college-level engineering projects, designed and built using the latest components, tools, techniques and materials. The senior program (Bearbotics #4068) participates in the FIRST® Robotics Competition (aka "FRC"), an international competition described as a "varsity sport for the mind" and "the hardest fun you will ever have". Students are often surprised by the challenges and opportunities in this engineering-inspired program, but with commitment and perseverance all can grow their skills significantly. Our "Mission & Vision" describes our goals for Bearbotics and its programs.
