Registration for the 2022-2023 Season will open 09/05/2022

Timberline Middle School runs a Robotics Club for all students grade 6-8. This is a competitive club that learns about robotics concepts and builds a robot to compete in the VEX IQ Global Challenge. Teams are composed of 3-5 students and at least one parent coach. We hold meetings at school and students may take their robotics kits home between meetings to work on their robots.

    1. Club advisors do not form teams and they do not force students on to other teams
    2. There will be a chance to form teams at the interest meeting
    3. If you are still having a hard time finding a team email the club advisors and they will add you to the recruits list
  2. Find a parent/guardian willing to be your coach
  3. Come up with a team name
  4. The Team Coach uses this link to enter the team's information.
  5. Each parent must complete this permission form (link)
  6. Once the above is complete, you will be given a date and time to pick up your robotics kit!

All steps must be complete by the end of September. Because of the volume of students this will be a hard date, submissions after this date will not be accepted!
