What is FIRST Robotics Competition?

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international program created by Dean Kamen in 1992. It is a program where teams of high school students, with the help of mentors, design and build a robot. Every season has a different theme and corresponding challenge, meaning an entirely new robot is built each year. Because each team designs its own robot, no two robot competitions will be the same.

What our team does

Pablo Center's FIRST Robotics Team 8744, The Leviathans, have been building robots since 2021. The team meets over the course of the season to prep, design, program, and build their robot at Pablo Center. Throughout the competition season, The Leviathans will travel to compete in scrimmages and competitions, with the hope of qualifying to compete for FIRST Championship alongside other teams from around the world. 


2023 FIRST Robotics Competition Challenge


This season's FRC challenge is all about getting Charged Up. It's goal is to inspire teams, just like The Leviathans, to see the potential in energy storage. They will be competing to charge up their communities by building a robot that can compelete this season's requirements!

New Auburn Robotics Team 8782 - TroBotics

As a part of the Leviathans' outreach in the community, the team mentors New Auburn’s TroBotics 8782 team. Led by New Auburn Technology Education teacher Austin Rayburn, TroBotics has been around since 2021 and continues growing as new students learn about the program. The two teams meet throughout the season to support each other, address questions or technology issues, and learn from each other. We are honored to work with them.
