Every year we design and create a robot, which we then take to competitions to compete with teams from all over the United States. Since we are the oldest FIRST Robotics Competition team in Bend, other FIRST teams (FLL, FTC, and FRC) depend on our team members' involvement for their success.

Summer meetings are underway, every Tuesday at 6pm. Join us in the Physics classroom at Mountain View High School if you are interested in seeing what robotics team is all about.
Student Registration / Logistics
The team, school district, and national FIRST all require specific information for students to participate in our robotics team. While they may attend meetings, all of these registration steps must be completed before students may participate in tournaments, travel, and other team events.

Sponsor the High Desert Droids!
FIRST Robotics Team 753, known as the High Desert Droids, has been bringing engineering and science opportunities to our local youth since 2002. We are thrilled to have both home-schooled and traditional students from Mountain View, Bend High, Summit, Ridgeview, and Redmond Proficiency Academy as members of our team. The rival high schools collaborate to build one team robot that will compete with other groups from around the globe. We have about 30 team members who are excited to build amazing robots!
