Which Team is for you?
FRC Team: Competition Season runs January – April
- Students in grades 9 – 12

Programming: Students learn to program in various languages for various applications including drive controls, vision technology, and LED display boards.
Design: Students learn to design parts and complete robots using AutoDesk and Solidworks software as well as using drafting tools such as paper and pencil.
Fabrication: Students learn how to machine parts and assemble them into a working robot. Other skills include prototyping and communicating with the designers to create what they need.
Electrical: Students learn proper wiring methods including, but not limited to creating custom circuits, soldering, and proper shielding techniques.
Pneumatics: Students learn how pneumatic systems work and when they are better options to other systems for certain jobs.
Business Development: Our team must be self sufficient so students learn how to raise money through fundraisers and grant applications. Students learn how to account for the money spent and budget for each aspect of the teams needs.
Art: Having a working robot is important, branding the team is also vital to our long term sustainability. We need students interested in graphic design to help us sell our brand. These students are very important in creating our team shirts, flyers, pit displays, and much more.
