We are FRC (First Robotics Competition) Team 5115, The Knight Riders. We come from Wheaton High School in Wheaton, MD. The team was founded in 2013. We have won the Northern Maryland District Event in 2016 and the Central Maryland District Event in 2017.
We have around thirty students working in various jobs on the team; designing and creating mechanical parts, wiring electronics, and managing the website and finance. Multiple parent mentors help to guide the students to create a competitive robot for use in the yearly competitions.
FIRST is an international robotics competition in which teams from pre-K to high school come together to compete and put their hard work to the test against other robots from their region.
