The purpose of the club is to develop students' interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) through robotics competitions. Robotics competitions foster student's interest in STEM, develop skills in team effectiveness, and develop a community of excited learners. VEX Robotics promotes "gracious professionalism", where teams compete against each other yet at the same time help each other with problems. The BRMS Robotics Club provides a place where all students, especially those with an inclination for technology, can thrive. We hope to inspire students who never thought they could do this kind of work, and to encourage students to explore career alternatives.
