ERC and Lewis & Clark

FRC Team 4931 is one of several FIRST teams that make up the Edwardsville Robotics Club, or ERC.  All together the club has over 100 students in all of its JrFLL, FLL, FTC and FRC teams!

Starting earlier this month, ERC’s FRC, FTC, FLL, and most JrFLL teams will all start meeting at the N.O. Nelson campus of the Lewis & Clark Community College. This is a wonderful and modern facility with loads of history and charm, and it’s the same rooms that the FRC team used last year for our build site.

Each of the teams will benefit a lot from our new home. But even better is that it will make it easier for the older and younger students to work together and to share their passion for STEM.

Of course, none of this would be possible without Kathy Willis and Katie Haas from LCCC. We’d also like to thank Luke Jumper for all his efforts setting up the college’s Fabrication Laboratory (FabLab) that’s nearing completion — it’s going to be an amazing resource for our FTC and FRC teams.

Maps to the campus are available on our “Where we meet” page.
