Welcome

We   are   Northwest   Florida   Robot   Spot,   where   local   middle-   and   high- school   aged   home   schoolers   meet   to   learn   about   STEM,   marketing, public   speaking,   graphic   design,   teamwork,   technical   writing,   all   while being    tasked    with    a    real-world    problem    that    needs    an    inventive solution.      Organized   and   encouraged   by   their   coach   and   mentors,   the club   is   entirely   student-led.      They   create   a   fictitious   company   from   the ground   up   including   leadership   roles,   website   design,   logo   design,   tee- shirt   design,   and   of   course   the   design,   engineering,   and   building   of their   machine   that   will   be   marketed   as   the   best   machine   to   buy   in order   to   solve   the   problem   at   hand.      Supported   by   our   hub,   Emerald Coast   BEST ,   our   team   competes   in   the   fall   along   with   many   other   area public and private schools.  

Thanks to our donors

Our organization relies solely on private donors in order to help the students subsidize the cost of getting ready for and going to competition.  We appreciate the generosity of family, friends, and strangers who want to see this home school team succeed. Please support our students by contributing to our GoFundMe initiative.
