About Robotics

The Middle and High School Engineering and Technology robotics programs are committed to using the motivational effects of robotics to excite students about science and technology. Within DeKalb County School System we have 14 middle school FIRST Lego robotics teams as well as 39 High School VEX robotics teams. These students compete in local, state, and worldwide robotics competitions yearly.

Our Mission...

  • To develop a mathematically competent and technological literate workforce
  • To influence children to become interested in robotics and related technologies as an area of study and future employment
  • To grow future entrepreneurs and employees for the region and nation
  • To enhance the economic development of these technologies regionally and nationally
  • To develop standards-driven curriculum for middle and high school teachers
  • To catch kids having fun experimenting with science and technology

The Tucker High School Robotics Team celebrated their official SEND OFF to the 2012 VEX World Championships in Anaheim California.  The event was held Friday, April 13, 2012, from 12:30 to 1:30 PM in the engineering laboratory at Tucker High School.  The Dekalb School is no stranger to the World Robotics Championship. In 2011 the Team was awarded the Support Award at the World Championships in Orlando, FL.

The SEND OFF ceremony started with a special luncheon provided by Ilene Farley on behalf of the Tucker High School PTSA.  The event was highlighted by the presentation of $2000 by Oglethorpe Power to Sean Csukas, senior member of the Robotigers.  It was also announced that Sean is the recipient of a $1000 scholarship from Oglethorpe Power as he plans to attend Georgia Institute of Technology in the Fall. 

The Robotigers presented Orglethorpe Power with a Vex Tournament trophy inscribed with their corporate logo in appreciation of their generosity. Other members of the team being recognized were Dawit Abay, Daino Daino, Mario Mignott, Sean Purcell, and Lee Wilkes. The Robotigers also recognized Dr. Stephen Csukas of Tucker Middle School and Mrs. Leah Wilkes for their parental support all season long. Additional recognition was given to Robotics Coach Charles Kachmar, Mr. Robert Knox, Mrs. Wyonna Pringly, and Mrs. Jo-Anne Branch.

The team will travel to Anaheim, California to compete in the Vex Robotics World Championship on April 18 –21.

Sean Csukas receives $2000 from Demetrice Clayton of Oglethorpe Power for Tucker High School Robotics.
