I'm on Team 303. Last year I mainly worked on the mechanical build. I'm debating doing some electrical stuff this year too.

We went to Trenton and then the Connecticut regional. We finished overall in 3rd in the NJ regional and I don't remember what connecticut was but I know it wasn't as good.

Anyone else still doing FIRST Robotics?

I'm so happy, (not trying to brag) I just got back from Philadelphia which we won! And we also won at Trenton!

FIRST Robotics has all sorts of levels of competition. The most popular one though, is high school level. It depends whether or not your high school competes in it, or maybe another local high school does and you might be able to join their team.
