Meet our teams
We have 2 teams here at Whitmore Lake Robotics. A middle school team and a high school team. We also have programs for Kindergarten through 3rd and 4th through 6th grade. Our high school and middle school teams are a group of worldly, down to earth, individuals. The team is made up of students from different schools. Students from Pinckney High School, to Kensington Woods, Livingston Classical Academy, Ann Arbor Christian, Whitmore Lake High School, Washtenaw Alliance for Virtual Education, and even some Homeschools, are all apart of our team!
Who We Are
We are a group of young and aspiring engineers who band together over our unified love of robotics!
From school pep assemblies, to fiery competitions, we always bring our passion and dedication to the arena floor.
What We Do
In 6 weeks, we design, build, and program a robot to complete in various annual competitions.
The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
Using the FIRST values of Professionalism and Coopetition, the Whitmore Lake Robotics Program's mission is to advance respect and appreciation for engineering within not only the team, but the school, town, and greater Whitmore Lake community. WLRP is a student-led and student-run team, so that the team can build more than just robots: they can build relationships and communication skills. By pairing the engineering and communication skills of FIRST, WLRP serves to inspire capable, innovative, and team-oriented leaders of tomorrow.
From the moment I understood the weakness of my flesh, it disgusted me. I craved the strength and certainty of steel. I aspired to the purity of the blessed machine. Your kind cling to your flesh as if it will not decay and fail you. One day the crude biomass you call a temple will wither and you will beg my kind to save you.
But I am already saved. For the Machine is Immortal.
