Welcome to Roc City Robotix Team 3838
We are a FIRST Robotics Team that competes in FIRST Robotics Competition at the High School Level. All Rochester NY City High School Students in grades 9 through 12 whose school does not have a team are eligible to join our team.
Our 2016-2017 Season will be starting Thursday September 22nd.
We are meeting in the Rochester Engineering Center (map) on the lower level of Edison Career & Technology High School, 655 Colfax St. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM starting September 22nd. The lab will open at 2:45 PM for quiet study or for working on robotics projects so that students may take the Edison bus after school from their HS to Edison. Students must arrange their own ride home. Students are welcome to invite their parents and check us out at one of our meetings listed on our calendar.
Our mentors include machinists, engineers, programmers, and scientists who donate their time to mentor students to design, machine, assemble, wire, program, and debug their robot. We then compete in FRC competitions with and against other FRC teams.
Our students have the opportunity to learn robotics, design, mechanical CAD, mechanics, electronics, motors, gearing, wiring, micro processors, wireless networking, JAVA programming, machining, graphics and much more. Students also learn team work within and outside our team.
This year we competed in the the Finger Lakes Regional at RIT March 15-18, 2017. Our next event will be at the Ra Cha Cha Ruckus held in the fall.
Contact us if you are interested in joining the team, becoming a mentor, donating money, or time, or materials.
