Welcome to Shelby Robotics!

This is the home for our three robotics teams:

Team 7252 "Vicious Volts"

Team 7253 "Raging Robots" - 2016-2017 FTC Velocity Vortex Michigan State Champions!!!

Team 7254 "S.W.A.T. (Shelby Wildcat Autonomous Techies)" formerly known as: "N.E.R.D.S (Nerdy Engineer Robotic Design Students) - 2016-2017 FTC Velocity Vortex - St. Louis World Championship top 1/3 in Edison division!!!

Team History:

  • In 2017-2018, all three teams advanced to the state championship in Battle Creek, MI and Team 7253 advanced through a lottery to the World Competition in late April, 2018.

  • In 2018-2019, Teams 7252 and 7253 competed. Team 7252 advanced to the state championship.

  • In 2019-2020, Team 7252 competed and advanced to the state championship.

  • In 2020-2021 and 2021-2022, Teams 7252, 7253, and 7254 competed and all advanced to the state championship.

Our season typically runs from September to December. If we advance to the Michigan State Championships and beyond, our competition season extends.

In preparation for our robotics competition, we meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening and Saturday mornings. More days are added as we get closer to competition dates. Various sub groups, such as software, CAD, build, or drive team, might have additional meetings to get their specialty area completed. It is a lot of hard work, but it is also fun!

We are committed to STEM and creating future leaders in technology. We encourage our team members to demonstrate respect and Gracious Professionalism towards everyone they encounter.
