Help us Inspire the Leaders of Tomorrow

COVID Information:

KING TeC programs will be following the policies and rules of the PLSAS school district in regard to health and safety relating to COVID.

Our intention is to have a fully in person season from start to finish. In the event that PLHS is no longer available for the program, we are preparing alternative plans. This includes sending equipment home (LEGOs, robots, maps, tables, etc.) so the teams can continue to work on their projects. During the 2020-2021 season, High Tech Kids and FIRST made use of the video streaming chat program Discord to allow teams to communicate with each other as well as holding remote competitions. We will be working in a similar manner.

Note that in the event equipment does have to go home with the teams, we will be rolling out forms that one or more adults on the team will fill out to assume liability of the equipment until it is returned to KING TeC.

More details including the policy specifics and forms will be coming soon.
