FREE Build Space for Local FRC Teams

Hello Mentors, Students, and FIRST Enthusiasts,

The Delgado Community College Fab Lab and Automotive Department have teamed together and would like to extend an invitation for teams to have the opportunity to play on our campus.

The Fab Lab is a wonderful resource that offers the opportunity of making and creating by use of tools and equipment in the lab. Equipment such as a CNC machine, 3D printers, laser machines, and vinyl machine. Mentors are encouraged to bring their students because we want to be a community hub for schools to collaborate, work together, and display gracious professionalism all while building/working on your robot.

3 3D printers are available and material is provided to FIRST teams!

The Automotive Department is going to open their space for the students to have an opportunity to practice. We understand that a place to practice is not always easy to find and it would be wonderful for students to be able to get a feel for what their robot can do before competition. Currently there are mentors building field components in the Fab Lab and those components will be placed in the automotive shop once they are completed. We anticipate having the field components and field layout for a half-field setup. If your school has a trailer that you haul your robot with or if you have a truck that hauls your robot and your tools there is parking. However, parking close to the building is limited if to many schools have trailers.

Delgado Community College is excited to be able to have the opportunity to serve students and mentors this build season. We look forward to seeing you here on campus and are excited about this build, good luck teams!!!

Open to FIRST Teams, exclusively : Saturdays, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Open to the public: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 4:00 – 8:30 pm
