Code Purple!

Our Club

We are Code Purple (Team 5827), an FRC robotics club from Lake Washington High School and other local schools, based in Kirkland, Washington.  Our club was started in 2011 as a VRC team, and switched from Vex to FRC for the 2016 season for a greater challenge and more opportunities to enhance our STEM principles.  We found it to be an amazing opportunity to both learn and grow.  Starting in January of every year, the FRC  season begins again and our club members build a robot to compete in the current year’s FRC challenge.  Running a team is expensive, so donations are always welcome!

The upcoming 2020 season is called INFINITE RECHARGE, and we are very excited to see what the competition has in store!  For more details, check out the FIRST site here.
