International Thespian Society
Advisor: Dave Ward at Dave Ward
International Thespian Society (10-12) $45 annual fee. This is for students who are passionate about all levels of theatre. You will join an international community of performers who work to not only do excellent arts, but promote arts in the greater community. At MICS the ITS chapter is the main vehicle of student leadership for performing arts on campus. The officers help to set the agendas and to select shows for performance. There is an initiation for students who want to join where they must have proved their active participation on campus. Generally, ITS students are involved in many on campus events so the meeting times will vary. Interest meetings or general meetings will be announced in the Raptor Call and MICS announcements.

Robotics (High School)
We are a team under the guidance of First Robotics Competition (FRC): Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Our industry mentors helps students through teamwork in designing and building a robot to tackle various obstacles for competition season. Students who have never used a tool before have found this to be an exciting and valuable experience. Students learn to use hand tools, power tools, in addition to learning how to wire electronics for motors and sensors, plus programming code to drive the robot; besides having fun and building teamwork. We also have a need for students interested in Computer-aided design and marketing expertise to become part of the team to promote our mission and STEM opportunities to others.
