On Saturday, January 7th, we will be having our FRC Kickoff. FIRST broadcasts our challenge for the season at this time, so we will be watching the game video, and then discussing the game and strategy. We will start meeting at 9am in the CAPS Atrium (just walk in the door and you can't miss us) and will go until 3pm at the latest. We will have a lot of cinnamon rolls for breakfast and pizza for lunch. We hope to see you all there!
After kickoff, we will begin meeting more frequently. We will be meeting Monday through Thursday from 6-8pm and then Saturdays 9am-4pm (or possibly later or earlier depending on what needs to get done). We understand if you are unable to make every meeting, just come when you can. For parent info, click here.
We are FRC Team 2410, The Metal Mustangs, from the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas. Our robotics team competes in FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competitions. In FRC, high school students worldwide build a robot in a 6-week time span for the year's competition. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for high school students to explore applications of science and technology as well as achieving personal growth and learning. Watch our chairman's video below for some interviews from students and mentors that really expalin the feel of the team.
