About Us

Robotics is a lab-based course that uses a hands-on approach to introduce the basic concepts of robotics and engineering, focusing on the construction and programming of VEX VRC competition robots. The course is tied to the VEX robotics engineering curriculum, in which students work in groups to build and test increasingly more complex mobile robots. Class members are required to participate on our JPII S.H.I.E.L.D. Robotics teams.


JPII S.H.I.E.L.D. Robotics Team 61317A is comprised of members from our founding year in 2017-18 as well as new members added for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons. These students have grown through experience and involvement to become a tight knit, like-minded group sharing a strong interest in the studies of robotics and engineering. Team members also take on the role of mentors to our middle school apprentice team.


JPII S.H.I.E.L.D. Robotics Team 61317B, affectionately known as "Girl Power", is JPII's all-girl robotics team for the 2019-20 season.


JPII S.H.I.E.L.D. Robotics Team 61317C is our middle school apprentice team. Interested students in grades 7 and 8 are welcome to participate in after school sessions to observe and practice construction and coding of a VEX robot with guidance from our high school teams. Apprentices are also invited to attend our scheduled tournaments when available.
