Academic Clubs

  • Aeronautics Club
    The Wootton Aeronautics club endeavors to explore and understand the dynamics of flight through the construction and flight of remote-control model aircraft. Students will also be able to get a chance to listen to aeronautical engineers around the region as well as volunteer in community partnerships with elementary schools and KID Museum for demonstrations and fundraisers. Our club meetings are every two weeks on Tuesday in room 180.

  • CATS
    Cross Age Teaching of Science (C.A.T.S.) is an organization that allows high school students to teach science to elementary school students. Groups of Wootton High School students visit local feeder schools, once or twice a month, to perform science experiments/demonstrations for first, second, or third graders. The demo is followed by a discussion of what happened, why it happened, and how it happened. The demonstrations help students learn and practice leadership skills and connect with the local community while also helping young children get a peek into more complex, scientific concepts through a fun visual and interesting discussion. We meet monthly in Mrs. Peth's room.

    We build and program Lego NXT robots to help teach people about robotics. Every year, we compete in the ION Mini Urban Challenge, which is a robotics competition in which robots must navigate a miniature city while staying on the roads, following speed limits, stopping at stop signs and parking in the specified parking spaces. Members also compete in intramural line following and sumo bot competitions. This year, we hope to build a robot swarm.
