ViperBots Valor

FIRST Robotics Team 6800, ViperBots Valor, from Vandegrift High School in Austin, Texas, USA

Vandegrift High School’s Robotics Program, Viperbots was established in 2010 in the North Austin area and has been highly successful over the past 9 years. By the end of 2016, the program had established seven FTC teams. However, at the end of the 2017 school year, the ViperBots sponsors and ViperBots Friends and Family announced that they were finally introducing their first FRC team to the program. This was revolutionary considering that the program had been primarily focused on the FIRST Tech Challenge. We are so excited to be a part of the FIRST Robotics Competition for our third year and hope to use our experience to lay a strong foundation for future ViperBot Valor generations.
