DuRT competes in three competitions throughout the year, GRC (Gateway Robotics Competition), FRC ( First Robotics Competition) and FTC ( First Tech challenge). All robots used are built by our team of dedicated students from scratch. We are always looking for more members, so be sure to stop by and join the team.
