The mission of the LCRC is to introduce 8th-12th grade students to engineering, robotics and computer science using an affordable and accessible robotics competition. The LCRC is organized through a joint effort by the College of Lake County Transfer Engineering Department and Lake County Treasurer Holly Kim. We want students to have the opportunity to experience STEM education in a fun, competitive, critical thinking manner.
Typically it costs between $5,000-$10,000 for one team to compete in a robotics competition. Many students do not get the opportunity to participate because of the high cost and time commitment. Some prospective teams also lack help and guidance needed to get up and running. The Lake County Robotics Competition aims to change that! With free loaner kits available, the startup cost for a team to compete is minimal. We also provide guidance from CLC Engineering students during Saturday build days at the Baxter Innovation Lab on CLC’s Grayslake Campus.
