GearCat Robotics

GearCat Robotics has been teaching students critical thinking, problem solving and vital personal leadership skills using robotics for the last 7 years. As a member of GearCat Robotics, students get more than merely a traditional education as we (the coaches) are constantly looking for opportunities to empower our students to see themselves as leaders and to take ownership of their education so they will become better prepared for life beyond school.  IMG_4202.jpg

Students will be taught by licensed, nationally certified, Purdue educated Project Lead the Way teachers with a wide breadth of knowledge in STEAM related areas.  GearCat Robotics also has partnered with InDesign Engineering Firm who provides us with experts in the field of programming, mechanical engineering and project management.  Furthermore, students will be mentored by former GearCat alumni.
