The Anacapa Science and Technology Department has expanded in some exciting ways. Robotics students learn about programming robots, community service, and teamwork! Students discover solutions to the tasks and problems at hand and after weeks of practice and challenging head-to-head battles between our two Anacapa teams, the students compete in robotics tournaments with other schools.

The STEAM Lab course combines Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics plus elements of Art (the “A” in STEAM) into a discovery-learning laboratory. Students learn electronics theory and gain experience with circuits and electrical engineering, “Arduino” microcontroller programming, and computer programming while creating, building, and sometimes breaking gadgets and gizmos along the way.
