The Dartmouth High School Robotics Club builds robots to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). We have two FTC teams, 7571, the Alumineers, and 13406, Consistently Inconsistent. 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!
Use the Java programming language to complete the autonomous phase of the challenge and give life to the build team's mechanics.
Traveling to elementrary and middle schools to recruit aspring engineerings for our summer class while grabbing attention of potential club members and help orchestrate in-house competitions and outreach events.
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.
