The IEProgram's Robotics Team

The Independent Education Program is excited to be piloting their first ever engineering program. Structured around the FIRST Tech Challenge competition, students will be part of a team representing the IEProgam as the learn about engineering, technology, and design.

The team will be directed by Russ Whatcott, a former Head Engineer at Purple Mattress. He will be assisted by Devin Whetten, an IEProgram alumni and FIRST competitor.

The team will learn robotics, engineering, and design in preparation for the FIRST Tech Challenge, where they will compete. This program is built on the educational values the IEProgram is founded on. Students will participate in active learning and have a chance to test their learned skills in a real world environment.

Although the program is being piloted by a small team, the hope is that the program will grow into a full offering from the IEProgram.

The team will meet on Tuesdays from 1-4pm in Highland, UT.
