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-focused 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 allowing students 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 Robotics can be directed to the program directors, Marta Carrillo and Aidan Ferrer.

FIRST Robotics Competition 2022 Challenge: Rapid React!

In this year's challenge, teams across the world will be challenged to acquire, deliver, and score oversized tennis balls into a central Hub shared by all teams on the field. Teams will earn points based on how many balls (referred to as "Cargo") of their Alliance's color they score over the course of the match. By the end of the match, teams may also opt to traverse a set of monkey bars located at their end of the field. For more information, check out the Game Animation below.
