Peddie’s Robotics Team has had an impressive spring. After ranking 12th out of 120 teams in the FIRST Mid-Atlantic District and winning the FIRST Mid-Atlantic Seneca District Event and the Industrial Design Award, Peddie’s team of robotics experts was ready to take part in the 2017 FIRST Robotics World Championship.
Build. Program. Compete.
Peddie’s Robotics Club offers a unique and exciting opportunity to dive headfirst into the world of Robotics. Under strict rules, limited resources and tight deadlines, you and your teammates will work together to build and program a 120lb robot and bring that robot to compete at the FIRST Robotics Competition.
FIRST is the oldest and largest student robotics program in the world, and the FIRST Championship is a highly competitive dual event, held in both Houston, Texas and St. Louis, Mo. and drawing 65,000 attendees from over 39 countries.
The team works out of our Digital Fabrication Lab – a state-of-the-art, 3,400 square foot building purpose-built for robotics. The engineering lab features advanced fabrication capabilities, including a CNC mill, CNC laser and 3D printer, while the upper floor serves as a robotics practice field.
