Say hello to the NRP Knight Owls, Northridge Prep’s competitive robotics team coached by Mr. Fernández. Coach Fernández is a Northwestern graduate with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Design Engineering, as well as a master’s in Robotics and Control.
Each year, the Knight Owls build a robot to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge. The game is revealed in September, and the competition season officially begins in late November, culminating with Regionals in January and State in late February. Success in this competition requires team members to collaborate effectively, developing skills in brainstorming, coding, mechanical construction, testing, and fundraising.
Additionally, the team meets every Saturday morning from 9 AM to noon, an important commitment when joining the club Last year the team made it to Regionals, but this year they hope to make it to State.
Robotics students should NOT commit to any other clubs during Activity Period since this club meets all four days.
