The Robotic Dragons
FRC Team #7117

FRC, FIRST Robotics Competition, is a high school level robotics competition where students experience first-hand the miracles that a career in science and technology can produce. The unique part of this program is that students are expected to work hand-in-hand with professional engineer volunteers to design and build in six weeks, a robot about the size and weight of a high school student (up to 150 lb & 5 feet tall) to play a game that changes every year. This is a challenge for both student and engineer creativity.

Teams are formed in the Fall with an annual game Kickoff the first weekend in January starting the six-week design & build. Competitions of 40 to 80 robots take place in March and April in arenas across the world and are capped by a double championship event, one in Houston Tx, the other in Detroit Mi, involving 300 teams each.
