:FIRST Robots are large, at 28" * 38" * 60" and weigh up to 120 pounds. You are given an inital kit of parts.  You can buy or fabricate most any other part that you need from any source. The robot can be either bolted or welded, no glue or tape is allowed. The robot must be designed, built and tested in six weeks.  There is a limit on the numbers of motors that you can use. The robot is powered by a single 12 volt battery.

Welcome to Downingtown Area Robotics
Home of FRC Team 1640
from Downingtown, Pa.
Downingtown Area Robotics in Downingtown Pennsylvania, is a group of Students, Mentors and Sponsors, focused in getting students interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based careers. We facilitate this through numerous activities garnering these skills and knowledge. The most important would be the Robotics Competitions. From the beginning, we teach each roboteer valuable skills including: critical thinking, communications, organization, teamwork, creativity, and collaboration. We also bring in STEM knowledge in areas of electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, programming, designing, building and rebuilding, prototyping, and mathematics.
