The Highline Robotics Alliance teams, Skunk Works Robotics and Tekerz Robotics, invite all to an Info Night on Thursday, May 16, 2024, from 6-8 p.m. 

Skunk Works began competing in 2007 in FIRST FRC, a robotics division for high school aged students. They build 125 lb robots that compete on a field about the size of a basketball court. 

Tekerz got its start in 2011 and currently has teams in both FRC and in FTC, which is a division that makes slightly smaller robots that compete on smaller fields. FTC teams typically have students from grades 6-12.  

Competitive robotics teams aren’t only for prospective programmers and engineers!

“Our teams also need students interested in business and marketing fields like graphic design, writing, social media, photography and outreach,” organizers said. “We also utilize data analytics to determine game play strategy.”  

Yes, programming, cad design, wiring and shop are also VERY important to creating a competitive robot and we welcome students interested in those areas to visit as well! 

If you are interesting in attending please fill out the form linked below for further information regarding the location and program:

“Thank you and we hope to see you there!”
