Who We Are
Lake Oswego Robotics organizes extra-curricular Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities, including Robotics teams, for students in Lake Oswego and surrounding communities. Our work includes planning and promoting STEM programs, recruiting and training volunteer leaders, securing meeting spaces, acquiring and managing equipment, handling fees and expenses, advertising and marketing, community outreach, and fund-raising.
2018 Summer Robotics Camps for elementary and junior high students are here!
The introductory course as well as the Battle Bots camps are now available for registration. Please Register through Lake Oswego Community School by clicking the link below:

Last year, we fielded three FTC teams (high school / middle school) and seven FLL teams (elementary / middle school), taught Java to thirty high school students, mentored middle school students for the Intel Science Symposium, and offered eight robotics classes to elementary students through LO Community School. We continue to explore new ways to introduce more students to STEM and are always looking for volunteers to support this effort.
“Introduction to Robotics” – This camp introduces the concepts of robotics and computer programming for beginners. Students will learn about algorithms, functions, variables, loops and conditionals using Lego Mindstorms. They will then program a robot to perform simple missions and compete against other robots. (Ages 8-12)
"Battle Bots" - This camp applies concepts of robotics and computer programming for students with some robotics experience. Students will build a competition robot (“battle bot”) from a standard design and customize it with appropriate sensors and attachments. They will then program the robot to compete in a challenge with autonomous missions and head-to-head combat. (Ages 8-14)
