The DARC SIDE is a high-school robotics team started in 2016 from Durham, NC. We have a “work hard, play hard” mentality and seek to teach about robotics through competing in the annual FIRST Robotics Competition.
"Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, 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." (firstinspires.org)
2017 in Review
In its inaugural year, team 6502 picked up two Rookie All-Star awards, as well as the Highest Rookie Seed award at the NC district championship and the Judge’s Award at the FIRST World Championship in Houston, TX. Over the 2017 season, Bracket Buster went through many major revisions and improvements, which allowed the team to win these accolades.
