Wapakoneta Robotics Club
The Robotics Club is part of Wapakoneta High School and takes part in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). The team was founded in 2015 and started out competing in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) but moved up the highest level of competition, FRC, during the 2022-23 school year. During the rookie FRC season, the team won the Rookie All-Star Award and advanced to the World Championships in Houston, TX.
As a team we combine our talents into a successful group that can be both triumphant, but also encouraging for our peers and in the Community around us. We have members from all different types of backgrounds, and grades, that when combined can truly create something amazing. This team wouldn't be possible without the generous contributions from local business and organizations, including our primary team sponsor, Wapak VFW Post 8445.
This team is what started the Wapakoneta Robotics Club. It was founded in 2015 and was the catalyst to move the team into FRC. The last season this team competed was during the 2022-23 school year and has since been retired once the robotics club moved to the next level of competition, FRC.
FRC is the highest level of competition available for High School students. Our team is comprised of 9th - 12th grade students. Our rookie year was the 2022-23 school year where we won the Rookie All-Star award and advanced to the World Championships in Houston, TX
T-Shirt Cannon Robot
Our T-Shirt cannon project was made possible through the support of the Wapakoneta Breakfast Optimist Club. It is a great promotional tool and showcases the skills our students learn to build robots for competition.
