Key Events and Dates - 2022
Following is a list of key events and dates that the Robotics Club has each year. Parents are welcome to attend the competitions. If your Robotics student chooses to go to a competition, they are required to use the school provided transportation that leaves and returns to WHRHS. However, as a parent, you are welcome to drive to a competition/event and attend on your own. There is no charge and it is a great opportunity to see what it’s all about.
