The Robotics Club is a project-based club that involves students working in teams to program and build a LEGO Mindstorms robot for use in competition at the annual RoboRAVE event held in Albuquerque.
The RoboRAVE International was founded by three New Mexico teachers including the founder and President of Inquiry Facilitators, Inc. Inquiry Facilitators, Inc. was established in 2002 as an educational non-profit in New Mexico.
The mission of RoboRAVE is “Making Research A Core Value,” with the belief that through robotics that our kids are learning how to question, runs multiple investigations, builds connections, and engage in endless discussions that allow them to reflect on their own impact, which are the very principles of inquiry, of conducting research.
The SFIS Robotics club is open to any student, grades 7-12, who has desire for a challenging experience.
The faculty advisor for the Club is Smokey Trujillo, who is also an original founding member of the RoboRAVE.
