Triple Helix Workshop
Located in the Tech Building on the Menchville High School campus, the Triple Helix Workshop is where the team’s robots are developed. This shop adjoins some classrooms which are used for team meetings.
Our workshop is outfitted with most professional-grade equipment needed to fabricate an effective FIRST Robotics Competition robot. Students work alongside experienced mentors to develop valuable skills on this equipment.
- Precision metal machining equipment including 6×26″ manual mill with DRO and 9×29″ manual lathe
- 80 watt CNC laser cutter designed and built by Triple Helix
- Multiple 3D printers
Peninsula STEM Gym
Founded by Intentional Innovation Foundation, the Peninsula STEM Gym is a place for student robotics teams to develop competition robots and have real-world engineering experiences that will inspire a lifelong interest in science and math.
The Peninsula STEM Gym features:
- 75% FRC practice field
- Complete official FIRST Tech Challenge field sponsored by Newport News Shipbuilding
- Meeting space for 20
By enabling our students to better practice their sport in our Gym, we increase the likelihood that they can “turn pro” upon graduation.
