Founded by lead mentor Tai Donovan in 2014, Team 5472 The Wyld Stallyns is based out of American Heritage School in Delray Beach Florida. Our robotics program includes all grades K-12 with after-school enrichment, summer camp, and competition teams. All members of the FRC team serve as mentors to our younger robotics teams.
At American Heritage School, many members of FRC 5472 work as counselors for our Summer Robotics Camp with programs for rising 3-5th graders and rising 6-8 graders. Spreading the fun and excitement of STEM and Robotics is the main focus of our team. In addition, our partnership with LexisNexis and HPCC Systems has given our team members an opportunity to present their work on facial recognition, security and autonomous vehicles to a global audience.
Sponsors include American Heritage Schools, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, HPCC Systems, FlexSeal, Concurrent Realtime, and Snapon Tools.
Come see the Wyld Stallyns during the ROBOTICON FIRST Robotics Competition Off-Season Competition on October 8 & 9 at University Mall in Tampa!
Our FIRST Robotics Competition teams will be playing the game “Rapid React“, which is played by two alliances of three teams each, with each team controlling a robot and completing specific challenges in order to score points.
The main scoring elements are “Cargo,” represented by over-sized tennis balls, about the size of a soccer ball, which teams vie to shoot into a central Hub and then a climbing challenge that provides extra points at the end of a match, depending on high up the hangar assembly their robots can go before the buzzer signals the end of the match. The overall objective of each match is to score more points than the opposing alliance before the match ends.
You can enjoy a full weekend of Rapid React gameplay at ROBOTICON, at University Mall (soon to be RITHM at Uptown) , in Tampa, FL, October 8 & 9!
There will also be an Innovation Fair for all to enjoy and opportunities to learn how to get involved in or start teams in your school or community. ROBOTICON Tampa Bay is free and open to the public. Visit our event page to see the schedule for our Manufacturing Month event, which will feature different competitive robotics programs each weekend in October! Teams interested in registering can do so HERE through September 30.
