Shakopee Robotics: Team 5541 Overview

The Shakopee High School Robotics Team exists to encourage the development of students’ interests in the areas of math and science.  The team prepares young minds to work and thrive in our increasingly technological world and global economy by competing in high-energy robotics competitions.  Shakopee Robotics competes at two levels of robotics competitions run by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology): FTC (smaller robots) and FRC (big robot).    For these competitions, our team designs, programs, and builds a robot to score points in a game that is created each year.

Two years ago, the FRC Team competed in it’s first robotics competition - the 2015 Lake Superior Regional in Duluth, MN.  There, we earned the Lake Superior Regional Rookie All-Star Award!  It automatically qualified our FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team for the 2015 FRC World Championships and allowed us to compete at the very highest level.  Our experiences from that inaugural year have lead to more success in 2016 and 2017.  Shakopee Robotics has doubled in size to and now consists of four award-winning FTC and FRC teams.
