If that is your dream school, the next step is to phone (not text or message or email) the head of the Alumni Relations Department of CalTech and ask to be directed to graduates of that school who majored in Robotics and/or Electrical Engineering who might live and work near you so the you might meet them and visit them at work to find out what they do, how they got there, and how you feel about what they are doing.
Also, talk to the head of Alumni Relations at your local community college to gain the same information. Many people in these fields get their start at a community college. The tuition is less and all of the credits transfer and they have great coop and internships programs that will give you experience along with your education.

Please keep me informed. I would like to follow you progress.
Choose your classes with care. Certain classes will focus on different areas of this field. If you are interested in a specific area, for instance, one class may lead you into a electrical engineering career; a second into robotics.
With a good coursework in hand, you are getting closer to admission in Caltech.
