Chantilly Robotics Team 612
What Is Team 612? In 1999, Chantilly Robotics FIRST Team 612 was established as part of a six week project in an engineering systems course in the Chantilly academy. 16 years later, Team 612 has grown to embrace the ideals of FIRST, and has managed to encompass over 100 members, and 10 mentors. We pride ourselves on having equal opportunity for everyone who joins us, regardless of status. Team 612 utilizes a corporate structure meant to simulate a real business environment, in order  to prepare our members for a real life environment. The team is divided into five sub-teams: CAD, Mechanical, Electrical, Programming, Marketing. This allows our members to focus more on skills that they're interested in pursuing outside of school.
                      Our Subteams
CAD Using computer software to form objects in virtual space, CAD designs the team's robot, making sure that limitations are kept in check, before creating blueprints for the mechanical team to assemble.
Electrical Electrical is responsible for designing an electrical board that fits the CAD design, connecting the electrical components, and managing the pneumatics that give our robot the power to move.
Mechanical Mechanical is responsible for taking the CAD blueprints and creating custom parts that are all assembled to make different parts of the robot.
Programming Programming writes all of the software that runs our robot using the libraries provided by WPI in combination with Java.t
Marketing Marketing is in charge of spreading FIRST and STEM to the community through outreach events. They are also in charge of funding the team through finding corporate sponsors for team sponsorships.
Leadership Leadership is in charge of the team, making sure that it can run smoothly and efficiently. They make decisions that directly influence how the team will develop.
