Who we are

We are Wheaton High School’s FIRST robotics team #5115, the Knight Riders. We participate in FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition), which combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.

Through FIRST we gain experience and knowledge in engineering, business, programming, budgeting, and so much more. Contact us at knightriders5115@gmail.com if you’re interested in joining the team, sponsoring us, or becoming a mentor.

Here is a team photo we took after winning in the 2017 FRC Chesapeake District Central Maryland Event. Thank you to our alliance partners, Team 2534 (The Lumberjack Robotics) and Team 1389 (The Body Electric) for your hard work and support on the field.

Being just a 4th year team, we never imagined we would come so far this fast. We are thrilled to participate in the Chesapeake District Championship at Richmond, VA. Wish us luck!
