RPS leaders hope to have Robotics programs in every elementary, middle, and high school, making RPS 205 the first in the state to have FIRST Robotics available at the K-12 level.
During the 2013-14 school year:
- Junior FIRST Lego League (K-3) teams were at Froberg, Whitehead, Lathrop, Washington and Brookview.
- FIRST Lego League (4-8) teams were at Lincoln, Marshall and Froberg. (The Lego League team at Marshall competed at the state level.)
- Jefferson High School pioneered the district’s FIRST Tech Challenge team, in which students learn to think like engineers.
