Since 2005, Holy Cross has been educating young men in the field of robotics.  The school’s teams have won numerous state and regional awards with BEST (Building Engineering Science and Technology) Robotics, VEX Robotics, Mini-Urban Challenge, and VEXIQ Robotics.  Robotics helps the young men at Holy Cross School learn how to implement effective problem solving skills in the areas of design, computer programming, and engineering while constructing robots to compete at state, regional and world levels.  Through these experiences our young men are choosing to prepare themselves for college and careers in the areas of science, mathematics, technology, and engineering. 

In the summer of 2018, Holy Cross will be hosting its 8th annual STEM Camp.  Participants will discover Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics during a hands-on, fun-filled adventure. During the week campers will explore STEM (throw in a little Art and we’ll explore STEAM) through interactive projects, experiments, computer animations, multi-media presentations, and robotics! The camp will conclude with the campers demonstrating their newly acquired skills for their friends and family members.
