About Pattonville Robotics

Our Mission



Our mission as a club is to have involved students teaching others about robotics in a fun and inclusive yet professional environment. Here at Pattonville Robotics, we emphasize FIRST Robotics values such as gracious professionalism and the importance of STEM related activities to students and members of our community.

History of Pattonville Robotics

The Pattonville Robotics Team was founded at Pattonville High School in Maryland Heights, Missouri in 2009 for students wishing to grow their skills in engineering, problem-solving, programming, and science. The after-school club has continued to grow since then and is now among the most respected and successful clubs at Pattonville.

With two to three teams having competed at FTC competitions since 2009, the Pattonville Robotics Team, formerly Green Army Robotics, ranks among the most experienced FTC teams in the state of Missouri. We have competed at the Missouri State FTC Competition every year since 2009, taking the Inspire Award at the 2011-2012 competition, and participated in the 2012 First World Championship in St. Louis, Missouri. We regularly take home programming and engineering design awards from various FTC competitions and pride ourselves in finding unique programmatic and engineering solutions to even the toughest competitions problems.
