The Algonac Robotics Team is the robotics team of the Algonac Community Schools and we are based out of the Algonac Jr/Sr High School. Our school is located in the Algonac/Clay Township area in St. Clair County, MI.
The team participates in two robotics competitions each year: FIRST Robotics Competition(FRC) in the winter/early spring and FIRST Tech Challenge(FTC) in the fall.
FTC#9819 RoboRats is our middle school (grade 6-8) team and FRC#5860 Full Metal Muskrats is our High School (grade 9-12) team.
Teams involved in the competition find out about the game at the same time worldwide. They have six weeks to design, build, and test their robots before traveling to a variety of venues, competing with other teams from all over the world.
The Algonac Robotics Club is supported by many corporate and local sponsors. These sponsors support the team financially, supply mentors and services, such as machining and special metal fabrication, enabling the team members to have the best possible experience, and learn many skills that are applicable to many future professions.
