Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future

VEX Robotics

Robotics Team meets after school weekly on Monday or Thursday from September - February.  Students must complete an application and be selected for the club. Students use VEX IQ robotics pieces to design and build a robot to meet the year's challenge, then take their robot to competitions on the week-end. 

The CRES team was started in 2014 after several third graders saw a demonstration by Carver Middle School at a school board meeting.  Cypress Ridge robots have qualified for the State Competition every year since the inception of the program.

This year's schedule includes competitions at East Ridge Middle School, Tavares Middle School, Leesburg High School, Lake Minneola High School,  STEAMWorks, and Pinecrest Academy.  In addition, we will host the Welcome Back Tournament on October 8 and the Osprey Challenge on December 3, 2022 in our cafeteria.

In addition to Robotics Team, CRES offers several non-competetive Robotics Clubs for 2nd  - 5th graders.  Applications will be available in early September.
