The Westwood Robotics Team, based out of Westwood High School in Austin, TX, strives to create a safe environment in which students can develop and apply real-world engineering skills through gratifying competitions such as the FIRST Tech Challenge (Junior Varsity) and the FIRST Robotics Competition (Varsity).
Since 2008, our team has been working non-stop towards providing a brighter future for our past, present, and future members. We’ve grown from a small club working out of a garage to a multifaceted and experienced team working out of our school Makerspace. In the offseason, we undertake the hosting of FIRST Lego League and FIRST Tech Challenge competitions at our high school, host RoboCamp (our robotics summer camp for K-8), and aim to instill the ideas of STEM and engineering in elementary and middle schools around Round Rock ISD, servicing the robotics community and our local community as a whole.
FIRST Robotics Competition, or FRC (The RoboWarriors), is our varsity program at Westwood Robotics, open to Juniors and Seniors.
FIRST Tech Challenge, or FTC, is our JV program at Westwood Robotics, open to Freshmen and Sophomores.
