In 1999, Chantilly Robotics FIRST Team 612 was established as part of a six week project in an engineering systems course in the Chantilly academy. 16 years later, Team 612 has grown to embrace the ideals of FIRST, and has managed to encompass over 100 members, and 10 mentors. We pride ourselves on having equal opportunity for everyone who joins us, regardless of status. Team 612 utilizes a corporate structure meant to simulate a real business environment, in order to prepare our members for a real life environment. The team is divided into five sub-teams: CAD, Mechanical, Electrical, Programming, Marketing. This allows our members to focus more on skills that they’re interested in pursuing outside of school.
