WMHS Robotics – FRC Team 7530 <The Brotherhood of Steel>
At Watertown-Mayer High School, the robotics team participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, FRC is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, 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 exciting FIRST Regional Competitions where teams from across different US regions compete to win awards and ultimately qualify to go to the FIRST World Championship held in Detroit, MI or Houston, TX.
