Hartford Work-Based Learning Network Launches New Website!

Robotics Team (Full Metal Falcons)

Students design and create a robot that will compete in the FIRST National Robotics competition. Students acquire funding, and are in charge of marketing and development as well as the design and building of the actual robot. The FIRST competition grades students not only on the performance of their robots but also on service, leadership, sportsmanship, presentation, outreach, website design, and the aesthetics of the robot. The students perform all of these tasks between them, with some focusing more on the engineering, some on programming, and some on the administrative and business tasks.
