Methacton High School Robotics
Welcome! We are the Methacton High School Robotics club, based in Eagleville, PA. We strive to empower students to explore electronics, programming, and engineering through hands-on exploration. Students can pursue their interests through three avenues:
- Arduino: an extremely extensible microcontroller system with resistors, sensors, motors, etc.
- VEX: an up-and-coming series of robotics competitions.
- Arduino exercises: design your own project, including Arduino/VEX hybrids.
Please contact Mr. Sawyer, our club sponsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.

Tentative First Meeting
STEAM Day April 15 at Arcola
We are looking for volunteers to host our robotics exhibits at Arcola on April 15. There's a sign-up sheet. Talk to an officer or Mr. Sawyer for more information.
Feb 8 VEX competition at the Haverford School
Congratulations to Nick Besley, Sai Ganganapalle, Tom Krypa, Bryce Merrill, Arjun Pothukuchi, and everyone who has helped design, build, and test our two VEX robots. These two teams have set all-time Methacton VEX records for most matches won and most points scored. Granted this was our first official VEX competition but still, it was a very good learning experience that we will build on for next year. Sincere thanks to all who have contributed.
If you're looking for a new project, check out the new tutorial on the Processing Line Game on the Projects page. You don't need any experience with the software, and it's great for beginners. -Neil
Hey guys here's a link to a Youtube channel that I really like. This guy has some really great tutorials! -Mayur http://www.youtube.com/user/Afrotechmods?feature=watch
Our First VEX Competition Updated
We went to our very first robotics competition ever this past Saturday, December 7th, a day that will no longer live in infamy. Sai, Bryce, Arjun, Tanvi, Lasya, and Elizabeth along with two robots were there. Our top score, 38 points, was second best of the day - top score was 52. It was actually more like a scrimmage because there were not enough teams to make it an official match but still it was a great day. Thanks to all that helped us get there.
Robotics Competition at Penn State
Penn State main campus is running a robotics competition on March 22, 2014. We want to send two teams. Contact an officer and/or Mr. Sawyer if you are interested.
