Présentation à une future équipe


With these new teams, we are planning on bulding an off-season event by the end of the year 2023

"I wanted to get involved again and help Robo'Lyon in its efforts because this association has given me a lot. Creating teams allows me to take on management responsibilities and also to pass on my knowledge to high school students. Finally, I think it is important that the values of FIRST are spread in France."

"The development of new teams in France is based on meetings with schools. That's why we do not hesitate to travel, meet teams and invite all the students and adults who wish to advance in the project to visit our premises"


Esther Durant, presenting robotics to youth

We want to inspire the largest amount of students. therefore. Therefore we often give presentations. For example, a member of our team gave a TedX conference in front of hundreds of people



We try to inspire as many students as possible to do STEM. Indeed, we regularly go to highschools in our region to organize workshops around science, technology and robotic

Mentor the kids


Members of our team mentor FLL teams. We give great importance to the transmission of what we learned from the FRC
