Robotics Team Kicks Off The 2017 Season

The first competition for the team will be held March 4-5, 2017 at Hatboro-Horsham High School.


The La Salle College High School Robotics FRC Team #5181 is at it again!

The 4th robotics season at La Salle College High School began on January 7, 2017 with the worldwide release of this year's FIRST Robotics Competition STEAMworks. After attending a release party to unveil the game, the team got to work immediately by establishing a list of priorities and brainstorming ways to solve the multitude of challenges presented within STEAMworks.

Currently the team is wrapping up the prototyping phase of the design process, and some decisions are being made about the shape of the robot and the mechanisms that will complete each task. Stay tuned for more updates this season, and be sure to check us out at our local competitions that are free and open to the public:

March 4-5, 2017 at Hatboro-Horsham High School
