We are Team 1209, the RoboHornets, from Booker T. Washington High School. Our team is part of an organization called FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), which was founded by Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway. We have been a team for more than 15 years, and our team has grown to over 50 members.
Build season begins in early January at the “season kick-off” where we and other FRC teams learn about the new game and its challenges. FRC teams have six weeks to build and program their robot. During build season, our team meets three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. One of our biggest sponsors, The University of Tulsa, allows the RoboHornets to meet on their campus and use their labs while building the robot. After the robot is complete, the team prepares for competition. This year, we will compete at both the Shawnee and Tulsa Regional.
