Vision

Mission

To empower every members of Robotics@Fairfield to push past their limits and plan for the future.

History

In FRC, we use LEGO Mindstorms to teach students the two core components of Robotics - building and programming.

Robotics is an effective way to teach programming as students can see the robot in action and learn that precise programming instructions are required.

As a STEM topic, students can also develop valuable soft skills, such as the ability to think critically in stressful situations, time management and conflict resolution.

FRC’s syllabus is not only Robotics- based. CCA leaders will organise VIA activities which includes community work with various organisations.

FRC participates in two to three competitions each year- IDE Series*, NRPC and NRC. Recently, FRC won 1st in NRPC 2019 (Robot Performance, Technical Presentation).
