We are Fairview High School’s FIRST Robotics Team, the Black Knights! Beginning in our rookie year in 2007, we have competed in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) yearly, performing well at the Denver, Colorado regional. In 2010, we even went to the World Championship in Atlanta!
What do we actually do? We design, create and test a robot to compete in the First Robotics Competition. Our robot has been able to shoot frisbees, climb pyramids, toss basketballs, and balance on bridges! Of course, all of this takes a lot of work: our team members work on electric engineering, programming, mechanical testing, and even fundraising and web design. Even if you don’t have technical knowledge, consider joining – we can guarantee you’ll learn something on the team!
At the beginning of the school year, we meet once a week. However, when the six-week build season starts in January, we meet up to six times a week at Boulder High School to work on our robot! We compete at regional scrimmages, as the Denver regional, and are crossing our fingers for reaching the World Championship in 2014!
