Skills that Empower

About

We are a group of Adventist students, teachers, and mentors – partnered with FIRST – who recognize the importance of STEM education in Adventist schools. We recognize that students involved in our robotics programs learn much more than engineering. They learn marketing, time-management, communication skills, and creative problem solving in a fun and engaging way.

Sponsored by the Office of Education at the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, the Adventist Robotics League was started in 2004 by a group of educators led by Mel Wade. The Adventist Robotics League operates a number of FLL Qualifying Tournaments across the United States and one FLL Championship Tournament each year. The Adventist Robotics League looks forward to continued growth and expansion in both the elementary focused FLL and FIRST Tech Challenge for high school students.
