Robotics @ TinkerTank
Our robotics team programs are seasonal - but there is often something running year-round. Your best option is to just ask and see what's on!
All our teams are on a membership model:
- FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) team for high schoolers - costs $45/week
- FLL (FIRST LEGO League) teams for ages 9 - 16 - costs $30/week
- FLLJr (FLL Junior) teams for ages 6 - 9 - costs $15/week.
FLL and FLLJr require a TinkerTank membership (after-school or weekend) to join.
Just like a sports team, each team is working towards the goal of building their skills and competing against others to do the best across a range of categories. FIRST recognises that competition is more than just building good robots. It's about team work, encouraging kindness towards others, and working to do your best not to put others down in order to win.
These competitions rock, and TinkerTank is proud to host teams out of our facility. If you'd like to join, or find out more, book below, or click the little red button in the lower right corner of your screen.
These teams work a little different to memberships. You can't skip or pause for short periods of time - this is because the team fee actually covers the expenses of materials, equipment, team shirts and travel. The team also has more flexible meeting hours and whilst you might miss one meeting, you'll surely make up any missed time.
More than robots.
