Who Is Team Spyder?

Team Spyder is the robotics team that represents the Poway High Engineering Academy and builds robots to compete in competitions like FRC and VEX. But we’re so much more than that… As a robotics team, we’re set apart by our commitment to safety, our countless mentorships and events, and our insistence on simple community involvement. As members, Spyder's get to learn to program and build robots, be part of a real business environment, participate in everything from fairs to local government meetings! If you want to get involved and help others get involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), if you want to get real business experience, if you want to travel to events throughout the country, if you want to get plenty of college credit and possibly even some scholarships, or if you just want to build a robot, Team Spyder is the place for you.
