All Students Welcome

The hardest fun you'll ever have!

With limited time and resources, teams of students, with the support of adult mentors, build and program robots to perform challenging tasks in competition with other teams. Students can also be a part of the business aspect of the team.  They raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork and presentation skills, and perform community outreach. In addition to learning valuable STEM and life skills, participants are eligible to apply for $80M+ in college scholarships.

Information for New Students 

Welcome to FIRST Team 1305! We are a robotics team that is passionate about inspiring students to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and develop the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century.

Our team is focused on the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), which is designed for high school students who are interested in building robots and engaging in entrepreneurial and outreach activities. Whether you are interested in building robots, designing event playing fields, writing, presenting, painting, or any other aspect of STEAM, there is something for everyone on our team.

We are based at the Canadore College Commerce Court Campus, where we hold weekly meetings to work on our robots and plan for upcoming events. The season kicks off in January, when FIRST releases the new challenge for the year. From that point on, we meet more frequently to build a brand new robot and prepare for all aspects of the competition.

Competing in FIRST is the highlight of being on our team. It's a chance to experience excitement, dancing, socializing, strategizing, and cheering alongside your teammates. While building a robot is a core part of the experience, our team also emphasizes business, programming, and creative projects. FIRST Team 1305 truly offers an all-around experience that encourages students to explore their interests and develop new skills.

Whether you're interested in arts, design, manufacturing, writing, presenting, or even dancing, we believe that FIRST Team 1305 has something to offer you. We're excited to have you on board and look forward to helping you discover your potential as a STEAM innovator!
