How to Join
Welcome to N.E.R.D. Spark!
N.E.R.D. Spark's season kicks off in early January and doesn't officially end until April. After the World Championships event in April, we work in the off season to promote STEM in our community and develop our technical and leadership skills. We split up our team into build, programming, and leadership, and students are encouraged to try out each team to find what they're interested in. Generally, one may expect a few 2 hour meetings every week, dates and times determined by the needs of the members. As competition season ramps up, more meetings may be added in order to get things working.
N.E.R.D. Spark is intended for 9th- 12th graders, but we do allow 8th graders highly interested in robotics and STEM to get involved as an intern on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to get involved with our team, please fill out our interest form. Otherwise for our younger programs (LEGO Explore, FLL, and FTC), there is more information listed on the INNOVATE Albion FIRST Robotics Webpage.
