Joining FRC Team 6328 – Mechanical Advantage

Mechanical Advantage FRC 6328 is open to student team members who are willing to work hard and commit to the team. We accept students ages 13-18 (grades 8-12) from any school/community in the area. We are a community-based team and not tied to a particular school or town.

We have opportunities in:

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Software/computer science
  • Electrical/control systems
  • Machining
  • Strategy
  • Data analysis
  • App development
  • Website development
  • Graphic design
  • Photography/videography
  • Social media
  • Publicity/media outreach
  • Fundraising
  • Writing/documentation

In Season (January-April)

The season starts the first week of January, when that year’s game is released. The team then designs, machines, builds, programs, and tests a robot to compete in the game, and completes documentation and award applications, all of which is a huge task. Then, the team competes in several New England district events starting at the end of February/beginning of March. Based on the results of those competitions, the team can be invited to compete at the New England Championships in early April and the World Championships held in Detroit MI in late April.

Through build and competition season, the team will generally have work hours five days/week, including some on weekends. Students are not expected to be at all work hours. The time commitment for an individual student will depend on what sub-team(s) the student is part of, their personal schedule and availability, and their leadership role on the team.

Off Season (May-December)

“Teams are built in the off season!” While things do quiet down during the off season, the team is still working hard. This is the time we focus on outreach, fundraising, training, organizing, and everything else that needs to happen so we can hit the ground running in January.
