The LigerBots is a FIRST FRC robotics team composed of members from both Newton North and Newton South High Schools in Massachusetts. Students participating in LigerBots design and build a complex robot that plays a game, which is different each year. They have six weeks to design and build their machine. Students program their robot to control it on the playing field. During the competition, teams are paired in alliances, working cooperatively with two other teams to outscore a team of three opponents. In past years, we have designed robots to play frisbee and basketball.
