Team 1294

We build a 100 lb. competition robot in just 6 weeks. Our meetings start in the fall, with the official season for the FIRST Robotics competition starting in January and going through April. No previous experience is necessary to join. We welcome new members!


Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, we call the FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.
