The Upper School Robotics team - STAMPEDE - is preparing for their upcoming season beginning January 6. The team has expanded from 15 members to 25 and had a great pre-season where they created a movie "poster" for the upcoming theatrical production, learned pneumatics, and built supplies to aid in their upcoming season.

In addition, mentors serve as role models for the students, teaching them important traits in sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership.
