The Notre Dame Robotics Team encourages girls to explore various STEAM pathways as they build a robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition. The Janksters, also known as FRC Team 1967, focus on maintaining a student-led team and student-built robot with mentors in guiding and supporting roles. The team is made up of four committees: electronics, business, mechanical and programming. This allows girls to explore a variety of facets of engineering and business. The team is open to all interested Notre Dame students regardless of experience. 

Questions about joining the robotics team can be directed to the robotics program director, Marta Carrillo via E-mail

The Janksters competed at CalGames 2017 on October 14th and 15th. The team made it to eliminations and was the captain of the 8th seed alliance. The veteran students stepped into many new leadership roles and the new members learned all about scouting, networking and the Steamworks robotics game. Congratulations to all Janksters!
