The Robotics League is an intensive program for the dedicated technology student, especially those who want to take their experience with VEX Robotics and programming to the next level. Students work on teams to design build and program robots to play this year’s VEX Robotics Challenge game, Tower Takeover. Students then compete in competitions against other area schools. This year we will again be participating in the Chicagoland Robotics League. The culmination of the season will be the Battle of the Bots League Championship on March 7, 2020. The Julian Competitive League meets October-March, on Wednesdays and Fridays after school and some Saturday mornings, preceded by three weeks of preseason sessions.
