Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future

VEX Robotics

Robotics Club meets after school weekly 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,  Fruitland Park Elementary, and Pinecrest Academy.  In addition, we will host the Osprey Challenge on November 2 in our new cafeteria.
