The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students, coaches, and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that weigh up to 120 pounds. Robots complete tasks such as scoring balls into goals, flying discs into goals, inner tubes onto racks, hanging on bars, and balancing robots on balance beams. The game, along with the required set of tasks, changes annually. While teams are given a standard set of parts, they are also allowed a budget and are encouraged to buy or make specialized parts.
The FRC teams meet on two-three days throughout the week at The Stachelczyk STEM Center (43883 Airport View Dr, Hollywood MD 20636). You can check out our full program calendar.
Dues for the year are $400, to reserve your spot on the team please pay at least half within 14 calendar days of submitting your application (Please submit an application here). Payments can be processed through our website* or in person via check or cash.
