About Think Tank

The Think Tank (TT) is an application designed to assist teams participating in FIRST Robotics Competitions (FRC) to share ideas, transfer knowledge and discuss technological advancements in the field of robotics engineering. The goals of the TT include helping teams to improve their performance at robotics competitions and to encourage teams to increase their familiarity of the principles of robotics, science, technology, and engineering.

The TT website was conceptualized by students and their faculty advisors at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). It was designed, developed, and programmed by staff at WPI as part of the university's continued commitment to educate future engineers and scientists.

The TT website was designed with this commitment to education in mind. The TT is the only website where the FRC community can exchange information, knowledge and resources. Community members are encouraged to post articles, review articles written by other community members, and to exchange ideas on topics ranging from building your team, to making the most out of fundraising opportunities, to technical questions regarding the building of the robots. The success of the site depends directly upon the level of involvement of the FRC community.
