What is the mission of Winner’s Circle Robo Jockeys at Manual? To provide real-world hands-on learning to high school students in engineering, technology, business and communications. This is done by exposing students to career-enhancing skills through mentorship from professionals in engineering, business, and other fields. This team is working to build a community of STEM champions – sponsors, mentors, parents and students — who help teens build a foundation for a future in STEM and related fields.

What are the requirements to become a WCRJ member? Membership on the team requires a commitment to attending regular practices, plus parent support to help run the volunteer-managed team (volunteers spent over 2500 hours mentoring and supporting the team last year). The team has two components – engineering and entrepreneurship.
• Membership on the engineering team requires a higher level of commitment, including attending 6-12 hours a week of weeknight and weekend practices, especially during the team’s winter build season.
• Membership on the entrepreneurship team is less demanding – attending practices every other Friday after school to help with business, marketing, social media, game strategy, etc.
