Skunkworks Robotics is affliated with Aviation High School, located in Des Moines, Washington. We are registered as Team 1983 with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Our name, Skunkworks, is inspired by Lockheed Martin’s top secret Skunk Works program, where the company designed many incredible aircraft such as the SR-71. We are now in to our seventh year as a team and have grown and improved with each year.
While robotics is our passion, the Skunks recognize
that FIRST calls upon them to do more than
just build robots. Through Skunkworks Robotics, the
Skunks are active in schools, their
community, and with other FIRST teams. By encouraging students to pursue education and employment in STEM fields, FIRST works to preserve our region's economic strength and advance our global competitiveness.
And the Game is...
The Kickoff for the 2013 FRC season was held Saturday, January 5th. The new game was revealed to be Ultimate Ascent, a game consisting of robots scoring points with Frisbees and climbing a pyramidal structure to score bonus points. For more information read the FRC Game Manual or watch the Game Animation. Keep track of our events and progress by reading our Blog, Twitter, and Events pages.
