"FRC Logo"
FRC1640 accepts high school students, those entering grades 9-12 in September. No prior robotics experience is needed (but is welcome). We will teach the skills needed. The team build a large, complex robot for competition each year during a 6-week build season starting in January. Competition season takes place March-April. During build season (5-Jan to 19-Feb) the team meets almost every day (but students need not attend all meetings). Meetings reduce to about 3/wk during competition season (to the end of April). The rest of the year is off-season, with meeting once per week (Wednesday 6:00-9:00pm) and focused on training. We are a competitive team and have qualified and participated in the World Championship for the last 8 years (World finalists in 2014). Program cost is $600/student/yr.
