2017-2018 VRC In The Zone Season

This season marks the third year that Sandy Creek has participated in competitive VEX robotics. VEX robotics gives students at Sandy Creek an opportunity to apply what they have learned in all of their academic classes in a practical way that is exciting and competitive! Sandy Creek is a small town in northern Oswego county in upstate New York. We are a rural community with a total population of less than 4,000. We are best known for our annual snowfall of 240.3+ inches!
