Welcome to decatur robotics

Decatur Robotics Team 4026 is a student-led FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team at Decatur High School in Decatur, GA. FRC combines the rigor of STEM learning with the fun and excitement of traditional sports. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, we are challenged to build and program industrial-size robots to play a tough field game in alliance with other teams. We are not only learning valuable trade skills while getting hands-on experience but are also getting a crash course in collaboration, teamwork, and learning how to bounce back after failure. We compete at regional, state, and world championship events. We have been competing since 2012 under the name Global Dynamics.

In addition to competition, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (officially Decatur Robotics, Inc.) that promotes STEM in our community through outreach and training events. We also support local FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge teams.

Not quite ready for high school robotics? We can help you get started at the elementary and middle school levels. Contact us on this site or visit us at an event. There are options for kids ages 6 through18 (grades 2 - 12).
