Joining the Team


The Royal Oak Robotics Team is the most award-winning team in the history of Royal Oak High School. We are based out of Royal Oak Middle School and open to any attending student in good standing. The team is officially formed each fall shortly after the start of school. As such registration is also open to any graduating middle school students.

Why Join

Robotics offers exciting experiences that cannot be offered by any other team or club at Royal Oak High School. Throughout your time on team 1188 you will experience personal interaction in a team that designs and builds a 150-pound working robot every season. On the team you will work directly with professional mentors in designing, and engineering, a complex robot, as well as learning the business side of running a large team.

You’ll have additional opportunities such as:

  • Access to millions of dollars in college scholarships
  • Internship possibilities
  • First hand interaction with professionals from a number of fields
  • Instruction in how to use professional design and fabrication tools
  • AP Computer Science classes taught in the off-season.

How to Join

Joining the team is simple, just contact the school or send a email to and we’ll help you from there! Although the team officially forms in the fall members are welcome to join anytime of year.
