We are a group of motivated students led by dedicated mentors looking to do our best in competition and to build each other up.
Our robots are 100% student designed and built during the course of build season. Everyone has an opportunity to explore each aspect of the team and find what they truly enjoy doing.
We are more than just building robots…
Our team is comprised of just some of the following divisions.
· Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)
· Fabrication and manufacturing
· Graphic Design
· Photography / Videography
· Business Development
· Game Analysis / Statistics
Rogue Techs is a unique team through FIRST Robotics for a variety of reasons. In addition to our achievements, where we have won an award every year we have competed as a team (even during the canceled 2020 season due to Covid-19), we encourage students to participate on and learn more about STEAM. Every student who participates has the opportunity to learn and interact with each aspect of maintaining a competitive robotics team, from the obvious cutting and welding, to the lesser-known business plans, fundraising, and media. On our team, students are encouraged to explore what they already know within STEAM, and through a supportive group of peers and mentors to make mistakes, learn from them, and act as leaders for projects and innovations.
We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, 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. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
After making it through the first 6 weeks of the year, it’s time to demonstrate what teams have worked so hard to build.
Regional games are held worldwide during March and April.
Rogue Tech’s objectives are to try and attend a “Close to Home” regional game and a second “Travel” game per season. (Dates and locations are not available until early November/competitions usually run Thursdays to Saturdays).
Should Rogue Techs advance to the World Championships, that game is played in Houston in April.
