Research Triangle High School students formed a robotics team to compete in the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is the premier engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year. For more information on NC FIRST, visit NC FIRST Robotics.
The team meets regularly during the “off” season to prepare for “kick-off and build” season, which starts in January each year. For the meeting schedule, to help the team as a volunteer, or for other information, contact the team mentors by email at email@example.com.
We don’t want the cost of building materials, training and supplies to hinder the team’s ability to build a winning robot for this globally-known and extraordinary event. Please help us out by donating what you can. Learn how to make cash donations and view our wish list for in-kind donations here.
RTHS has over 25 active student organizations! Many are student-organized and run. This list is a sample of current organizations. We are very open to new options! Students interested in starting a new club must find a staff advisor and make a proposal to Mrs. Hall.
Groups are classified as:
Activity: Anyone can come at any time. Drop in!
Club: There are requirements to be a member. Ask the contact folks about joining!
Honor Society: There are specific qualifications to be selected.
