So, what is Dragomight?


About Team Dragomight

We are a community robot-building team competing in First Tech Challenge, a robot-building competition.  We welcome new team members in grades 7-12 interested in working together in the Ocala, Florida, area.

As we work through the competition, team members develop Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) skills and practice engineering principles while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. 

Competitions are exciting sporting events with Robot Matches, judging interviews, and Teams and Robot performance awards.  To have a successful season, it is very important for us to have team members with a diverse set of skills and interests such as:

Robot Building

Robot Programming

Robot Art and Design

Robot Business Management

Gracious Professionalism

FIRST® uses this term to describe our programs’ intent. Gracious Professionalism® is a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community.
