My Project

FRC Team #7483 is a small, rural robotics team from Viola, Arkansas. These parts will be used in the design and manufacturing of our competition robot for the FIRST Robotics competition 2023 season. Students in FRC study business management, Engineering and Design, Mathematics, Coding, as well as Teamwork and Cooperation.

FIRST charges a $6000 entry-fee to compete every year.

These materials will allow us to use the funds we have already raised to pay that fee and still have materials to build the actual robot! Last year, on a shoe-string budget, we made it to FIRST Championships. We would like to do that again!
