ABOUT ARC 6014
Our team has its roots in RC Roboteam, established in 2015. In 2015, we participated in Turkish Offseason and New York City Regional and won the Rookie Inspiration award in the New York City Regional. A year after, we expanded and became a new team SPaRC: A joint team consisting of Lycee Sainte-Pulcherie and Robert College. The teams united to make the best use of their strengths. As SPaRC, we participated in Turkish Offseason. We were given Entrepreneurship award, 5000 dollar to be used in our efforts for Regional competition.At Orange County Regional we won the Judges’ Award. Also, Alara Değirmenci from Robert College was selected as FIRST Dean’s List Finalist. 2016 was again a successful. In 2017, we, as Robert College Robotics Club, decided that we gained enough experience of working cooperatively and aspiring other Turkish teams with our devotion to robotics. That was the start of the current team: ARC.
Creating innovative projects in our club in technological and scientific areas, especially robotics;
Exhibiting our robots and projects in national and international competitions;

Hence, our main purpose is to inspire and train the magicians of the future by building STEM skills that inspire innovation while nourishing curiosity, creativity, perseverance, risk-taking, openness, self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
