is a robot designed, built, and programmed by Roaring Robotics students, ages 13 - 18, for competition.

He weighs over 120 lbs. and can

extend over 7 ft. tall.


The animation shows the basics of the competition. After the game is revealed, students only have 6-1/2 weeks to get a robot together.

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, Ill. for build activities and most meetings.

Openings for

Students 13 - 18

Roaring Robotics consist of students in 8th through 12th grades from all over.

Low Costs

Roaring Robotics is generously sponsored by

businesses such as Make-It-Here (pictured) and Caterpillar. Family costs for our team is less than that of comparable teams.

Real Robots

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.

Future Focused

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 Driven

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 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.

Through Make-It-Here, Roaring Robotics has access to an industrial grade MakerMpace with a craft and design

areas in addition to complete metal

and wood shops.

This video was produced by our graphics/media team.
