Greetings from FRC Team 3799, Electric Fire! We are a competition robotics team at NDHS. We design, build, wire, program, test, & drive robots; we teach STEM to kids; we learn about really cool technology (like 3D printers & drones); we spread the joy of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) in our school & the community; we gain resume-building experience; we strategize gameplay; we laugh a lot; & we do so much more! Robotics is a great place for skill-building, making friends, & having fun. 

Regardless of whether you are interested in design, programming, building, wiring, volunteering, writing, art, web design, animation, photography, presenting, historical documentation, or even social media, there is a place for you!  We encourage you to get more involved!
