We are a High School Robotics Team Located in Lafayette, Colorado. RC Dawson, or Team 2972, gives students a way to persue and discover intests in science, technology, engineering, math, marketing and buisness.
We build a competition level robot to compete in the FIRST Robotics Challenge
We hand program all the code which makes our robot a success.
We build and design parts for the robot with 3-D printers and imaging software
Buisness and Marketing
We work to develop the sponsor relationships which make our team posible
Each year we are presented with a multipart challenge and given exactly six weeks to design, build and program our robot. This year with ingenuity and your help we hope to not only compete in the world championship, but build a winning robot.
Regional Finalist Competitor
World Championship 2011
RC Dawson started in 2008 by Ryan Depew. The team was origionally called “Varsity Physics”, but as the team grew to contain much more than physics the name was changed to “RC Dawson” for Robotics Club.
We now work towards promoting exploration in STEM fields as well as buisness, marketing, leadership and comunity involvement.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Math
Buisness, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership
Hands on Learning
Without our incredible mentors and sponsors we would not be the team we are today.
