Embers Robotics is a community robotics team centered around a FIRST Robotics Competition team, Team 7583, Embers.
Our FRC team was formed in 2019 with 6 students and is now in its 3rd year. having grown to 15 students. Unfortunately in 2020, due to disruption by COVID-19 we were not able to do as much roboting as we would have liked with all events cancelled, but in October we were finally able to get back into the workshop after a lull of 3 months and we are now ear deep in a new robot build for the 2021 season.
