A team of South Iredell High School students has formed a robotics team, in conjunction with the Mooresville Youth Council to serve the entire county.

FTC (First Tech Challenge) Team VoltEDGE, will serve students between seventh and 12th grade, from both the Iredell-Statesville School District and the Mooresville Graded School District. Homeschool students in the southern part of Iredell County as well as charter school students are welcome.

The goal for the year is to make it to World Championships for FTC robotics while performing more than 1,000 hours of outreach as a team to promote STEM in the community. Beginning in mid-September, the team will meet every Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 8:30 p.m at NASCAR Tech off of Talbert Road in Mooresville. Iredell County students interested in being part of VoltEDGE should reach out to voltedgerobotics@gmail.com.

Team VoltEDGE is also looking for friends in Iredell County to support the effort through funding for parts, tools, workbenches and a 3-D printer.
