Join the Pablo Center FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team as we prepare to compete in the international FIRST Robotics Competition!

Throughout the fall, we will be focused on skill building including building and programming various robots, CAD training, and business team preparation creating photos, videos, and social media presence. Starting in January, we will be intensely focused on robot design, build, and programming based on this season’s game, released in early January.

Meeting will be every Tuesday and Thursday (6 - 8 p.m.) through 2023 with the addition of Saturdays in 2024 (9:30 a.m .- 5 p.m.). Registration closes Nov. 24.



Not sure if FRC is right for you? Join us for an open house so students and families can meet the team, ask questions, and see the robot in action!

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.

FIRST Robotics Competition

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. 


2024 FIRST Robotics Competition Challenge


This season's FRC challenge is First In Show. Its goal is to shine a spotlight on the role STEAM plays in the arts and in empowering young people, just like The Leviathans, to design and build a world of endless possibilities. They will use their engineering skills and creative power to build a robot that can complete 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.

Thank you to our sponsors
