The mission of the Prince of Peace Christian School RoboPOP Robotics Team is to allow students and mentors to share and apply knowledge of engineering, business, and leadership skills through a fun, hands-on-experience. As a team, members work toward a common goal of designing, building, marketing, and operating a competitive robot in a business-like environment while supporting the ideals of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).


Prince of Peace Christian School is blessed to have the Grandpa Pfeil Robotics Workshop on campus that is available to our robotics teams.

The POP Robotics team—RoboPOP-Team 3802 competed this year in a virtual competition with teams throughout the world. Even though the competition was not a live event, it was still filled with all the teams that normally compete. We were able to use the robot the team built last year for the competition. It was one of the best robots Team 3802 has ever built for performance, durability and design. This year’s team competed in a number of robot challenges from driving through an obstacle course, shooting accuracy, speed shooting and autonomous driving. Teams recorded their performance and submitted the results. Judges from FIRST interviewed the team as part of the virtual competition. Team 3802, with the help of last year’s robot finished the virtual competition with the following:

  • Industrial Design Award
  • 6th place in the virtual competition 
  • 17th rank in District including all of Texas and New Mexico

This year was very young team that lost several seniors to graduation. The team prevailed, persevered and did an outstanding job representing POP, and our Robotics program. Congratulations to RoboPOP-Team 3802.
