The PhyXTGears [fixed gears] FIRST Robotics Team 1720, is holding an OPEN HOUSE to introduce High School students and the general public to the world of science, engineering, computer programming and media presentation. Open to students in and around Delaware County.
Our yearly open house is a great opportunity for High School students to see what’s available to them when they join a FIRST Robotics Team. When you join a FIRST Robotics team, you become a part of a huge community of high school students who are focused on one goal: to improve the world through the exploration of science and technology.
There are many benefits to joining a FIRST Robotics team: You learn how to work with other people, teamwork and team building skills, electrical skills, programming, media (including blogging, photo journalism, public relations, public speaking, and fundraising) mechanical and engineering skills, how to use CAD design software and so much more!
