The Deerfield-Windsor Robotics Team, Giga Knights, are state champions in Georgia First Robotics. Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. FIRST Robotics Competition is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. The Giga Knights credit their success to the support of students at the 4C Academy.
After winning the state competition, the team competed in Houston, TX at the World’s Competition.
