Start a team

Starting and running an FRC team is incredibly rewarding.

What you need to start a team: 
- $6000k+ worth of robot parts
- A space to work in (a woodworking classroom, a garage)
- Basic tools
- An enthusiastic adult

There are no registration or competition fees.

To run FRC in a school setting it can either be run as part of an engineering class (it fits very well into both the general and ATAR engineering requirements for a project). Or it can be run as a club/extra-curricular, students should spend about 3 hours a week for 3 months as a minimum to learn the most, and get the most out of the program.  

Receive Sponsorship

Schools interested in joining the robotics competition may apply to DPIRD for sponsorship to cover all or part of the cost of the robot kit.

Schools seeking sponsorship for the robotics competition must commit to entering a minimum of 2 teams in the Innovation Challenge and 2 full days of participation in promotional events.

Private schools are not eligible for sponsorship.

Applications for robot sponsorship close Friday 24 May 2024.
