Welcome to Robotics
Heights High School is proud to boast one of the longest-standing Robotics programs in the Houston area! Robotics has been a core component of engineering and STEM education at Heights since 2001.
Heights is host to FIRST Robotics Team #441 - the Devil Dogs. Team #441 also participates in VEX Robotics Competitions, and mentors EARLY and FLL teams at Love Elementary.
Who we are:
We are the future engineers/programmers that develop their skills and ideas throughout the experience of being in robotics. It's not just "I'm going to build a robot" but it is about teamwork and having everybody's ideas together to make the best robot that can perform individual tasks that involve difficult challenges. It's not just about winning and being the best group throughout the district, but it mainly consists of getting everyone to participate and create this one massive masterpiece and watch it actually work. We are the future, We are the Robotics Team!
