Roaring Robotics, Team 2704, is a FIRST Robotics Competition team based out of Batavia, Illinois. The team meets year round at Make-It-Here in Downers Grove for build activities and most meetings.
Roaring Robotics competes in at least four robotics competitions each year. Specifically, two major competitions, an off-season competition using the season competition robot, and a small warm-up competition.
Students 13 - 18
Roaring Robotics consist of students in 8th through 12th grades.
Roaring Robotics is generously sponsored by
(pictured) and Caterpillar. Family costs for our team 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 extends 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 competition robots. They even fix the robots when the occasional breakdown occurs.
More Than Robots
Roaring Robotics has an active media/graphics team to promote our team and make it look great. As such, we have openings for students interested in more than robots.
Roaring Robotics is part of the Chicagoland makerspace community. Learn more by coming to our open house, which will be held jointly with Make-It-Here and the local makerspace community.
