The DC West Robotics team is a growing STEM-based robotics organization that has officially been around for 2 years. Formally, the NRAI (National Robotics Academy, Inc), we went all in with the DC West Community Schools and have had much success! We primarily use the VEX robotics platform.

In our second official year, we have a two-year World Qualifying HS team (8675A- Fuzzy Wuzzy 2.0) and a US Open (National) MS Champion (5233D - Falcon Mobil).

We impact a group of students that are often over-looked, the kids that are not athletes. Now, we also attract many athletes as well, but we definitely gather many students who do not have a niche yet are looking for a challenge that is not sports related.

This has been such a huge success that we are now set to implement a STEM class for the HS and MS for the 2017-18 school year.

We will also be implementing a 4th/5th grade program next year to spark some interest in the youth in our school system.
