Industrial Technology courses provide an important link between educational theory and hands-on application. The Industrial Technology curriculum allows the student to explore different career opportunities, experience real-life problem-solving situations, and realize the connection between the core subject area curriculum and how it can be applied to a variety of careers.
The Castle Robotics club is open to all students, freshman through senior. They currently have 20 members in the club. They meet Monday and Wedesday from 6:30-8:30, and Saturday from 8:30-3:00 in the Castle Robotics room.
In 2017, the robotics club competed in the Steam Punk competition and placed 8th in the State of Indiana. This year, the club will compete in the PowerUp competition in Plainfield, Lafayette, and at the state competition.
In this year's task, the students must create a robot that completes the following tasks: climb a bar while holding other robots, pick up a cube and place it on a scale, and various other tasks.
This year's Castle teacher sponsor is Mr. Brian Kilgour.
