Island City Robotics (ICR) is an after-school robotics program based out of Will C. Wood Middle School in Alameda, California.
The ICR program focuses heavily on friendly competition and cooperation, mainly through the FIRST robotics organization. With teams at both the Middle and High School levels, students are expected to design, build, and maintain complex machines for specific tasks, as outlined in FIRST's yearly challenges. If machinery isn't the student's interest however, there is lots more to do on the administration, accounting, rules, and public relations side of any given team. There's something for everyone!
