High School Program

What We Offer

Stellar Robotics offers one program (FRC) for high school students (grades 9-12) through the FIRST® organization

Member Responsibilities

Membership on a Stellar Robotics high school team includes the following requirements:

  • fundraising
  • parent or guardian support/volunteerism

Team Size

There is no limit to the number of students who can participate on the high school team. The scope and depth of potential team activity is nearly limitless. There is, however, a logical limit on how many hands can work on a robot at one time. Not every student operates the robot.

Number of Teams

Stellar Robotics currently offers one high school team. Technical mentors in all areas are needed.

High School Season

High school pre-season begins in September and runs through the fall. Kick-off for the actual build season is the first non-holiday Saturday in January. Build season is six weeks, and then we compete.
