Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math
FIRST Robotics Competition introduces students to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.) in a challenging and fun way.
Real Job Skills
Unlike many youth activities, our students actually have to produce a product. To compete, they need to design, build, and program an industrial sized robot in about 6 weeks. To do so, they not only need to work together, they need to make decisions and reach consensus together - just like a team work environment in a real world job.
A Place To Fit In
Although many of our students are active in a variety of extra-curricular activities, many are not. For a number of students, robotics is their main activity outside of school. Our team provides an activity outside of school for many students who do not easily fit in traditional school extra-curricular activities.
More Than Robots
Our team provides students with opportunities to get involved with the business aspects of the team such as media, marketing, and business planning. Because these efforts go towards supporting the team goals, it’s just like producing a genuine work product.
Although robotics involves competition, professionalism takes a priority over winning. Competitions require working with other teams. The team one competes against in one match just might be the team that one is allied with for the next competition.
Levels of Sponsorship
We want to give our sponsors credit commensurate with their degree of support to our team. The table below outlines our sponsorship levels for recognition.
