WHY JOIN The Midnight Cicadas:

FIRST is more than robots

On The Midnight Cicadas Robotics teams, we have a strong sense of diversity, equity and inclusion. We value each other’s input, ensure every person on the team is contributing, and foster an environment where anyone of any background can find a welcoming, compassionate community, and at the same time excel in the challenges presented to us. Building a robot is not our destination; building a robot is the path we follow to learn, innovate, collaborate, and build character. We use the task of building an incredibly complicated machine in little time under immense pressure while working together as a large team to bring out the best qualities in one another.

While it's easy to see the technical aspects of building a robot, our teams also requires involvement in many non-technical aspects. From media and business to concept art, marketing and strategy, if there is a role for it in the real-world tech sector, we can use the same contribution on the team. If you're intrigued by what we do, but have interests outside of mechanics, electronics and coding, we have a place for you.

Prior experience is NOT necessary.
