FIRST Robotics Challenge

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) provides a team of students the opportunity to design and build a robot during a 6-week period in January and February of every year.  Each year there is a different FRC game, and we design a robot to meet the challenge of that game.  At FRC competitions we compete with and against other robotic teams in the spirit of coopertition.

About Our FRC Team

Our FRC team, #5243 is now called Aegis Robotics.   Formerly Wildcat Robotics and then Centreville Robotics, our young team was founded in 2014. In that year the team went to the Greater DC Regional and won the Highest Rookie Seed Award. This paved the way for several successful years of competitions in FRC and also led to the creation of our current 7 FTC teams.

We spread the mission of FIRST throughout the community by hosting an assortment of Outreach events. We promote STEM education throughout our school and the communities around us. Our team membership has greatly increased since the team was first formed. As a result, we are now able to mentor FIRST robotics teams at Centreville Elementary School and Liberty Middle School, expand STEM opportunities at Centreville High School, provide STEM education outreach throughout our community, and to spread an appreciation for STEM throughout Northern Virginia.
