About Red Nation Robotics #4576

FRC Team #4576 Red Nation Robotics uses robots as the vehicle to bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-based leadership enrichment programs and competitions to youth in the North Knoxville area.

Our mission is to:

  • Inspire youth to become science & technology leaders by engaging them in robotics programs that build STEM skills 

  • Promote the spirit of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship

  • Foster valuable life skills such as leadership, teamwork, and creative thinking

  • Help young people acquire the knowledge and skills needed to compete in our technology-driven global economy

  • Encourage students to pursue STEM-based academics and future careers.


Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 4576, Red Nation Robotics (RNR™), was formed in 2012 by science, math and engineering teachers at Halls High School. Known as Red Nation Robotics, the team began with 11 members from Halls who turned the old wood shop classroom into the robotics lab. Today, the team consists of 40+ members and 3 faculty mentors, 5 non-faculty, and 10 alumni mentors, and has opened up the Team to other area schools. We have students from Powell and Halls High School, and Halls Middle School. We hope to help expand and grow FIRST in our community.
