Homeschooling in Smithfield:

JOCO ROBOS FIRST Robotics Team

TheHomeSchoolMom's local resource listings are sponsored by Time4Learning, where you can find resources, support groups, test prep info, and more.

JOCO ROBOS is a county wide high school robotics team proudly hosted by the new Associate in Engineering Program at Johnston Community College. These students make executive, technical, financial, strategic and operational decisions that mirror those of successful engineering companies, priming them for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Using key skills, students will design and construct a robot in a six week period and compete in the NC Regional FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC). The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is the premier engineering challenge for high school students. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year.

Students work with hundreds of components, including engineering mainstays such as programmable radio controllers, motors, electrical circuitry and mechanical parts. Following the six-week design and build phase, teams enter one of 77 regional or district competitions.
