About Ultraviolet
Our program gives us the chance to learn and apply skills in engineering design, fabrication machinery, programming, business, marketing, team collaboration, and more!

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. Our mentors are invaluable, guiding us through this process, but we pride ourselves on being almost entirely student driven, developing skills we will use throughout our education and careers.

Southwest Ultraviolet Robotics FRC Team 2129 was founded in the Fall of 2006, and, recently, we went as far as the 2022 World Championship in Houston, Texas! Our team typically has 15-30 students and always welcomes new members.

See our Event Calendar for meeting times.
