Oxford Robotics

Since 2002 Oxford Robotics is Inspiring youth in the pursuit of education and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through SUPER FUN robotics and scientific projects.  
Oxford Robotics currently supports over 100 students, Grades 2 through 12, in the OASD in our after-school robotics competition programs.  We want to grow so please get involved today!

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  COVID-19 and the CCP Virus continues to plague our country and our way of life as you are no doubt aware.  As we approach the new school year of 2020-21 it is clear that relief from the pandemic is still far into the future.  For the safety of our beloved students and our volunteers we have no choice but to sit out the 2020-21 Robotics Competition Season.  We are all heart broken about this but it is clearly in our collective best interest.  PLEASE join us in 2021 and apply to participate in the FIRST Robotics Programs with us.  In the mean time we all wish you all the best and a safe, productive school year.  BE SAFE!

Students can join us by applying on-line between March 1st and August 30th.  Our Applications Committee will evaluate all applications and provide a response as soon as possible.  Our competition season begins in late August / early September based on the release of the Challenge and Game rules by FIRST.  So please APPLY NOW as our limited capacity will fill up fast.  The fee for students assigned to teams will be $100 (Grades 9-12); $60 (Grades 5-8) and $40 (Grades 2-4).

FLLJr (FIRST LEGO League Junior) provides students from grade 2 through 4 the ability to learn critical skills in problem solving and principals of engineering through the development of simple machines using LEGO products.  They will be guided on a research project aligned with the season challenge and present their ideas through their LEGO creations.

FLL (FIRST LEGO League) provides students from grades 5 to 8 the ability to start or continue to learn through advanced challenges in real-world problem solving and advanced engineering concepts using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 platform to compete on a field of missions requiring fully autonomous robot operation.  Here they will learn about software development and mechanical engineering concepts such as gear ratios, inversions and differentials as well as mathematical concepts such as calculating degree of rotation and relation to precise navigation of the robot.  They will be introduced to sensors that enable interaction with real world elements and learn principals of light and sound wave behavior.

FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) provide students in grades 8 through 12 further advancement in engineering with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and application of engineering principles in development of the robotics solutions, management of projects, fiscal management and accounting and project management.  In FTC the student learns further advanced concepts of programming / software development as well as mechanical and electrical fundamentals with DC Controllers for motor and servo control.  Students at this level are allowed to fabricate their own parts and are provided more autonomy in the development of the solution to the competition challenges.
