Fairview High School

Robotics Team: The Black Knights

We are Fairview High School's FIRST Robotics Team, the Black Knights! Beginning in our rookie year in 2007, we have competed in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) yearly at the Denver regional. In 2010, our team won the regional and even went to the World Championship in Atlanta!

What do we actually do? We design, create and test a robot to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Our past robots have been able to shoot frisbees, climb pyramids, toss basketballs, and balance on bridges! Of course, all of this takes a lot of work: our team members work on electric engineering, programming, mechanical testing, and even fundraising and web design. Even if you don't have technical knowledge, consider joining - we can guarantee you'll learn something and contribute to the team!

At the beginning of the school year, we meet once a week. However, when the six-week build season starts in January, we meet up to six times a week at Boulder High School to work on our robot. We compete at regional scrimmages, at the Denver regional, and are crossing our fingers for reaching the World Championship in 2014!

    Hey!

    So we've been talking to the people at Boulder High, and we have secured the lab for tomorrow!!! Before we can work in the lab, Mr. Zonner (the Boulder High Lab teacher) has to give us a safety briefing, we will have to be at the lab at Boulder High at 4 tomorrow. We will meet on the bricks at 3:25, so that we make sure everyone gets a ride down. We will work on making the practice robot, and we will also work on getting money ( we need more money!).
