Robots At The Center Of The Universe
R.A.T.C.O.T.U. is a community 4-H robotics team based in Ashland. We are student-run and in our second year of competing. R.A.T.C.O.T.U. takes part in both FTC (11368) and FRC (6236). Our FTC team accepts anyone between the ages of 11 and 18 and our FRC team accepts anyone between the ages of 13 and 18 years old. We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays and work out of a machine shop in the Ashland Air Park. We do Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and our robots use mechanical electrical and pneumatic systems. On our team you can improve your leadership and social abilities as well as other important "real life" skills. We also attend many different outreach events in our area. Our mission is to give people in our community without robotics teams an opportunity to be more involved in STEM and FIRST.
We are always looking for new members to join us, so contact us with any questions!
