About The Team
Our team gives us the chance to learn and apply skills in collaboration, planning, team building, computer programming, engineering and more in an environment that encourages creativity and ingenuity.
As part of the annual FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), our team has just 6 weeks to design, program and build a robot. With such a short time frame, we have to practice excellent project management and work together collaboratively through each phase of the build process. We work with mentors to explore technical design, computer programming, leadership and more, developing skills we will use throughout our education and careers.
Southwest Ultraviolet Robotics FRC Team #2129 was founded in the Fall of 2006 with help from FRC Team #1816, The Green Machine. We typically have 15-30 students on our team and always welcome new members. JOIN US!!
Wondering about the time commitment?
The build season can get a little intimidating for scheduling, but there are many ways you might be able to contribute. If it’s your schedule holding you back, contact us to see how you might be able to be involved. If you have a very specific interest – don’t hold back – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how you would like to help.
We meet all year with intense practice sessions during build season (only 6 weeks from January – mid-February) after school (usually 3-5 pm). During the 6-week build season we usually meet after school as we usually do, but we also usually meet late (until about 8 pm) on Fridays and all day on Saturdays and school release days.
See our Event Calendar for meeting times.
