The focus of the Forest Park Robotics team is VEX Robotics. Our team members love a challenge and take full advantage of the other STEM Activities available within our school and community.
FIRST Robotics Competition
SuperNOVA is an All-County FRC team that consists of members from five Prince William County high schools: Forest Park, Woodbridge, Gar-Field, Patriot and Colgan.
Students have 6 weeks to design and build a 120 pound full competition robot. Our meetings take place at Woodbridge HS on weekends during the build season.
Forest Park Robotics currently has 10 members competing on the FRC team.
For more information you can view their website, http://www.supernova4472.org/ or use the Contact Us page and we will put you in touch with the team or talk to Mrs. Cinnamon at practice.
SuperNOVA’s robot reveal for 2020
Forest Park had one team compete in the SeaPerch underwater robotics competition in 2016 & 2017 who advanced to Nationals. We are looking at expanding the program in 2019 if funding becomes available.
Forest Park students who are interested in SeaPerch should talk to Mr. Longo or Mrs. Cinnamon to find out more.
Forest Park formed a Cyber Patriot team this year. The robotics team has several members who are participating. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services
Practices are held after school. Forest Park students should talk with Mr. Bimber for more details.
