About

The LigerBots is a high school FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) team with members from Newton North and Newton South High Schools. Each year students have six weeks to design, build and program a complex robot to compete in a newly designed game. The team is about “more than robots.”  In addition to learning technical skills both during the “robot build” season and in the fall, the team builds a budget, finds sponsors and participate in community outreach events to share their enthusiasm for STEM and project-based learning. Team members learn to do an elevator pitch and can also focus on video, photography and graphics. In 2018 the team won first place in the Safety Animation Award competition. Our winning video will be shown at many FIRST Robotics competitions to about half a million spectators over the 2018 season.

Come meet the LigerBots, see their robot in action, and find out what it’s like to be part of a high school robotics team.
