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 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
