FIRST Robotics Team 1099
Who We Are:
We are FIRST Robotics Team 1099, The DiscoTechs, located in Brookfield, Connecticut. We are an FRC team based out of Brookfield High School. Every year we compete in a world-wide robotics competition. A new game challenge is announced every January and we only have two months to design, build, program and test a robot before going on to our competitions in March/April.
Our students work hands on, implementing real world engineering practices, learning skills such as; 3D CAD modeling/design, programming, electronics, and manufacturing... More about us

If it weren't for the generosity of our sponsors and donors, we would not have the resources to provide these great opportunities for our community. If you would like to help support our team, please visit our sponsorship page.
The Ultimate Sport for the MindTM
"Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship." ...Learn More
