Join the Robot Revolution!
Plasma Robotics is a high-school robotics organization located in Mesa, Arizona at Red Mountain High School. Plasma Robotics is the home of FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2403, FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6834, and Zero Robotics Team 15. Team members hail from all over Mesa and anyone who lives in Mesa is welcome to join us. For more information, visit our About page.
We have regular team meetings every Wednesday at 4PM in the build room. Various specialty teams like build, programming, and media also meet regularly. You can always find out what is happening by checking our online Calendar here.
Since its FRC rookie year in 2008 Plasma Robotics has grown from 5 to over 40 members. Plasma Robotics is proud of its diverse, multi-talented students — some speak multiple languages, some play multiple sports, some play multiple instruments, and some know and use multiple programming languages.
Plasma Robotics works hard to promote FIRST and STEM education in Mesa, and Arizona. For the third year in a row Plasma Robotics has promoted FIRST at the Mesa Public Schools STEM Showcase to educators from around the city and Phoenix Valley. Plasma Robotics works to inspire STEM studies in Elementary School students by hosting annual STEM summer camps and collaborating with local Boys and Girls clubs and summer camp organizations. We also participated in several events at the Phoenix Zoo.
We also helped FRC Team 4565 Skyline Robotics, the second FRC team in Mesa, during its rookie year. Plasma Robotics worked with FIRST Team 1011 Crush to start the Arizona FIRST Student Division, an organization designed to enhance the FIRST community of Arizona through inter-team communication.
This past year we competed in the Phoenix Regional on March 21st – 23rd, 2013 where we won the Innovation in Control Award and were ranked 11th going into the elimination phase. We also competed in the Las Vegas Regional on April 4th – 6th, 2013 where we were ranked 3rd and we won the Engineering Inspiration Award. Although we lost in the finals, we earned a wild card slot at the FIRST World Championship event in St. Louis on April 24th – 27th, 2013. At the World Championships we finished 35th in the Galileo Division.
Plasma Robotics is looking to continue to build on their successes and achievements to create an even better team for 2014. You can be a part of that, Join the Robot Revolution! Join Plasma Robotics!
