Vision and Mission

The vision of the American Heritage Charter Robotics Program is to stimulate intellectual curiosity, enhance critical-thinking abilities, build problem-solving skills, develop a love of science and technology, and foster a culture of excellence. It is the mission of the American Heritage Charter Robotics Program to provide a positive team experience through robotics and promote science and technology within the school and in the greater community. The team experience will allow students to develop communication, project management, and interactive skills, as well as build a sense of community and encourage dedication to a common goal.

The American Heritage Charter Robotics Team at ECHS is a part of FIRST Robotics, which aims to help high school students get a glimpse of the world of science and engineering, ultimately assisting them to choose a career in a technical field. This is accomplished through building a robot and competing in tournaments, and allowing students to interact with professionals in many fields. Our program is a year-long venture. It is our goal to help team members:

  • Gain an interest in the different fields of science and engineering
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Develop overall character
  • Develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Build self-confidence
  • Learn to work in a team environment
  • Prepare students for real-world situations
  • Demonstrate gracious professionalism at all times
