Cistercian Robotics


Nicholas Williamson

In its first year as on official Cistercian Club, Robotics has already established itself as one of the most dedicated and hard-working activities on campus. Instead of taking a year or two to get settled in, Fr. Mark and the members of the club decided to dive in headfirst and will be competing in this year’s FIRST Robotics Competition! The FIRST Robotics Competition features schools from all over the Dallas – Fort Worth area and challenges students to design and build a robot using just a standard “kit of parts”. The students have a mere six weeks to finish building this robot and it must meet all the standards required by the competition, including being able to compete in a sophisticated field game. In addition to meeting on Tuesdays and Fridays, the members of the Robotics club meet frequently on weekends in order to help create the robot. If you’re interested in participating in the Robotics Club, speak with Matthew Dorn or Fr. Mark, I’m sure they would love to have you on the team!
