Why Choose Polytech?
Lake Alfred Polytech Academy offers programs not offered at other Polk County Middle Schools. We are set apart by our robotics program. It is state of the art technology put into use to shape our students future. Beginning next year we will have an Advanced Robotics Club using the VEX EDR Robots getting ready to compete at the High School level.
We are pleased to announce the start of our Lego Robotics Team. We will be using the EV3 Lego Robots and competing in competitions. The students will build and program the Lego EV3 Robot. These practices – precise logical thinking, using data to make decisions, analyzing problems, and building solutions in teams – are critical in all forms of problem-solving, not just robotic ones. Come join the Polytech Cyberbots Team!
