What is BGCA Robotics? Boys and Girls Clubs of Charlotte County, in an effort to boost student's Science and Math grades started a FIRST Robotics FRC team in 2012 at our Port Charlotte High School Club. After a lot of sweat, frustration, laughs and pride, we competed in last years FIRST FRC Rebound Rumble. Due to the success of last year's program, we have expanded FIRST Robotics to our elementary and middle school clubs. Murdock Middle School and L.A. Ainger Middle School are competing in the FLL (FIRST Lego League) and our Family Service Center and Tiffany Square Center are competing in the FIRST Junior Lego League. Our FRC Team roster has expanded and we are hard at work for this year's challenge- Ultimate Ascent (www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc). We are excited to bring these programs to our members. Not only does FIRST Robotics teach science, math, engineering and computer skills, but character and responsibility. FIRST and the Boys and Girls Club have become great partners in helping to build our future.
