DHS Robotics

Welcome

The Dartmouth High School Robotics Club builds robots to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). We use mathematics, physics, and engineering principles to develop designs that can withstand the challenge at hand. To bring our plans to fruition, we use aids such as CAD to 3D model our ideas and create 3D printed parts. Hope you are interested in joining!

Program

Use the Java programming language to complete the autonomous phase of the challenge and give life to the build team's mechanics.

Build

Make your intangible thoughts tangible. Use aluminum parts from TETRIX and goBILDA to form the mechanics of your robot.

Inspire

Create photos and videos to grab the attention of potential club members and help orchestrate in-house competitions and outreach events.

Teams

The DHS Robotics Club is composed of two teams, 7571 and 13406. We originally started with only one team, 7571, but it became apparent that a second team was needed after our number of members exceeded the amount allowed on a single team. Now they both participate in the same challenges and events. Thus, we still function as a club even though FTC organizers view us as separate entities.
