Roaring Robotics, Team 2704, is the FIRST Robotics Competition team sponsored by

Make-It-Here, Downers Grove. Students design, build, program, and drive 100+ lb. robots for competitions. The team is open to students ages 13-18 regardless of where they attend school.  Contact Us for more information.


Note:  We are no longer accepting students for the 2019-2020 season. We will start accepting students for the next season in June 2020. Contact us if you’d like to be put on an e-mail list for upcoming team events.

Roaring Robotics competes in about four robotics competitions each year. Specifically, two major competitions, an off-season competition using the season competition robot, and a small warm-up competition. The video shows the challenge for the 2019 season.

Roaring Robotics is

generously sponsored by

businesses such as

Make-It-Here (pictured), Caterpillar, and Motorola. Family costs are less than comparable teams.

The robots built by our team weigh over 100 lbs. and compete on a 27' x 54' field. Our 2018 season robot extended over 7' high.

Roaring Robotics introduces students to science and technology. Once introduced, students apply what they know on a project. The experience they gain prepares them for a professional career.

Student involvement is our focus. Although we have mentors to provide guidance, our students design, build, and program the robots for competition. They even fix the robots when the occasional breakdown occurs.

Roaring Robotics has and active media/graphics team to promote our team and make it look great. In addition, our team is run much like a business. As such, we have openings for students interested marketing and business in addition to photography, videography, graphics, media, and (of course) robots.
