In the offseason, we meet 6-8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When build season begins (January 6, 2018) we will meet 6-8pm Monday through Thursday and 9-3pm on Saturdays. Our meetings are always at the Blue Valley CAPS Facility.
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 explain the feel of the team.
Detailed calendar is available under the Parent Info tab.
Here is our reveal video for our 2017 robot, Silver!
This video was submitted for the Chairman's Award, the highest honor given to FIRST Robotics Competition Teams, recognizing a team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST.
