Welcome to FHS Robotics!The mission of the Farragut Flagship FIRST Robotics Team is to let students explore all areas of education and to work with mentors to share and apply knowledge of engineering, business, and leadership skills through a fun, hands-on experience. As a team, members work toward a common goal of designing, building, marketing, and operating a competitive robot in a business-like environment while supporting the ideals of FIRST. As a member of the FIRST family, you’ll learn to perform high-quality, well-informed work while learning and competing intensely, but treating one another with respect and kindness in the process – this is called “Gracious Professionalism.” You will also enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you have acted with integrity and empathy. FIRST is not just about robots; it’s about ideas and people, too.Membership includes students with a wide variety of interests including: video-photography, business planning, photography, website building, communications, fundraising, CAD, programming, C++, Java, and labview programming, design team, build crew, and more. Students meet weekly to plan, coordinate, and strategize for next season’s competition. The game is revealed the first Saturday of January and students have 6 weeks to design and build their robot for the regional competitions in March.The team meets every Monday 3:45-5 and Thursday 6-8 p.m. during the Fall. During Spring term, we meet M-F 3:30-9:00 and Sat 9 am-4 p.m. in the months of January and February. During March and April we meet every Monday and as needed for competitions. All meetings are held in the lower part of the CTE building.Please visit our website linked at http://www.farragutrobotics.org.
