GravitechX was founded in September of 2016 by students with experience in engineering and mechanical design. In just six months our team gathered sponsors, purchased materials, and built a robot that was competitive with teams who had quadruple our budget. GravitechX competed in competitions in March of 2017, winning the Rookie Inspiration Award, and March of 2018, winning the Excellence in Engineering Award. Following these competitions, GravitechX is working to grow the team and expanding its outreach in preparation for the upcoming FRC competitions.
