At SCH our Upper School students compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition as part of the FIRST Mid Atlantic District which supports teams from New Jersey, Delaware and Eastern Pennsylvania. Each team competes in two qualifying district events in order to be invited to the District Championship held at Lehigh University in the spring. From there teams can qualify for the FIRST World Championships. To find out more about our team use one of the buttons below or navigation bar at the top of the page.
What is fRc?
It’s way more than building robots. 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.
