TIME UNTIL KICKOFF
The Drop Bears is a high school robotics team with students from all over Sydney in years 8 – 12. We compete in sports-like competitions on an international scale attracting more than 3000 teams. The focus of the team is to design, build, and program a new robot each year to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC).
FIRST is a not-for-profit organisation that inspires today’s youth in areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) by hosting a new challenge each year for teams to compete in.
