Promoting Science and Technology Since 2013
Explorer Robotics is a non-profit, student-run organization dedicated to providing young people with quality robotics and STEM experiences. Our program was established in 2013 at La Salle College High School in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania through FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 5181. Since our inception, we have started many more FIRST® robotics teams, hosted various STEM-related camps, and trained numerous educators to mentor robotics teams at their own schools.
A Symbol for STEM Education
Our “star” logo is a reproduction of the Signum Fidei star of the De La Salle Christian Brothers, meaning the “sign of faith."
Each vertex of the star represents a core value of our robotics program and our Lasallian heritage: benevolence, civility, humanitarianism, service-oriented goals, and scientific pursuit. Through these values, we have identified a mission to promote STEM and FIRST® to a global audience.
