Team 4783, the RoboRavens, is a high school robotics team based out of Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School (LDHSS) in Nepean, Ontario, a subdivision of Ottawa, Canada’s National Capital. Team 4783 competes in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). The RoboRavens are composed of students, student mentors from local universities, and professional mentors from local industry.
Each year, FIRST releases a challenge in January, and the team must build a fully functioning robot before attending 2 District events. At these competitions teams and their robot, along with their teamwork, are put to the test, as they play the game against and alongside other FRC teams, along with competing for awards to earn District Points which allow them to qualify for the Provincial and World Championships.
FIRST is more than just robots. Students on team 4783 learn valuable skills, strategy, critical thinking, and participate in community events to help build their presence and spread the values of FIRST.
