Who We Are
Newberg Robotics is a group of students, parents, and educators who facilitate and promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics activities in the Newberg-Dundee area. Funded by the Newberg Booster Club and local business sponsors, we support one (1) FIRST Tech Challenge team at Newberg High School who completes in ORTOP's annual competition. In addition to providing high school robotics opportunities, we also provide elementary and middle schools with robot demonstrations, machine shop tours, and after-school career-technical camps. As we look to the future, we plan to create a collaborative team of educators in an effort to streamline the transition from elementary STEM, to middle school STEM, and into high school STEM.
