Three teams in one, the PJFRT strives to design and build robots that compete regionally and nationally in sports-like challenges. We are a small, self-funded program that supports FLL, FTC and FRC teams. Team Lionheart, the FRC team, works not only to build a competitive robot but also to positively affect our community. Within the FIRST community alone, members of team 1302 fosters participation in the younger levels by student mentoring as well as encourages the establishment of new teams by helping nearby schools join the FIRST family. Also, the students of the Pope John Robotics program wrote and published an FTC book, FTC Robotics: Tips, Tricks, Strategies and Secrets in order to help rookie teams beat the learning.
