On our team Ronin Robotics, we work together and build a robot to compete with and against other teams' bots from other schools. Using a variety of skills including programming, computer aided design, machining, and electrical and mechanical engineering, we construct our bot over a few months during the season. This Robotics Team is a part of FIRST Robotics, an international organization that runs multiple STEM related events around the world. The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, leadership, and community awareness. Anyone can join or team, no matter how much experience, if any, you have with robotics. The only thing required is a desire to learn and contribute to our team.
