Vail Academy and High School
The Vail Boxerbots team was organized in fall of 2005 as the VHS Science, Engineering, and Robotics Club. A NASA grant helped pay for the registration for the Phoenix Regional event. The goals of the club and team 1828 were to:
*increase student awareness of what scientists and engineers do
*prepare and acquaint students for careers in science, technology and engineering.
*develop problem solving skills in all students.
*introduce students to the safe and proper use of hand and power tools.
*provide an out-of-classroom education and experience that can not be obtained during regular school hours.
*involve parents, business, and community members in a fun and educational experience.
*increase community awareness and student interest in the school.
