 FAQ

Do I have to have experience in order to join Woodside Robotics?

Not at all! Many of our current team members came in with little to no experience. We will teach you everything you need to know in order to design, build, program, and wire robots.

Does robotics look good on college applications?

Yes! Many colleges around the world offer exclusive scholarships for people on robotics teams. Our graduating students last year got accepted to leading engineering universities around the United States.

You can also get scholarships through robotics, available exclusively for robotics participants. These include scholarships from leading schools such as MIT, Boston University, and Yale University as well as strong but smaller schools such as Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Olin College of Engineering. Highly respected international universities also offer scholarships exclusively for robotics students.

What are competitions like?

Competitions are amazing experiences. There are lots of teams from all over the world. They are a great time to meet friends and learn more about robotics. We have also been to the World Championships multiple times, and have sent team members to the Championships in Houston, Texas for the last two years!

What does the schedule look like?

Robotics can be a significant time commitment. However, we are fairly flexible when you need to be there. Our preseason schedule is still being determined, but you should expect to put in a good amount of time during our build and competition season.
