The Anderson Districts 1 & 2 Career and Technology Center robotics program is located in Williamston, South Carolina. Established in 2006, the ACTC Robotics program has expanded from a small group of students involved with FIRST VEX Challenge to many students and mentors involved in the past with the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), as well as VEX Robotics. These students have also mentored FIRST Lego League and Junior FIRST Lego League teams in seasons past.
It is the program’s objective to enhance each member’s high school experience beyond what is taught in the classroom by implementing the values and goals of VEX robotics. In this way, each student graduates with an enriched knowledge of science, engineering, design, project management, and real-life professional skills.
PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT
The Anderson Districts I & II Career & Technology Center Robotics Program seeks to increase student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in a hands-on, sustainable, and affordable robotics engineering program.
