About Us

You might think all we do is build a robot, but it's a lot more than that...
FIRST Robotics: More Than Robots

Hi! We’re FIRST Team 2010, the Lightning Bots. We’re an FRC Team from Champion, OH. Our goal isn’t only to build and compete at competitions, but to spread the ideals of FIRST and STEM.

This season, we had 15 commited students who all became well-versed in not only the topics seen here, but other various life skills. Members learn how to communicate more efficiently with their peers and adults, manage their time, and give back to their community through volunteering.

  • Design

    19% of our team uses Autodesk Inventor, a 3D CAD software, to design the robot

  • Build

    31% use tools and heavy machinery to build the parts of our robot

  • Programming

    19% program and wire our entire robot using LabVIEW to make it do what it does

  • Public Relations

    31% write awards for competition, and advertise in our comunity to get the word out about FIRST
