Introducing STEM and Teamwork to the Youth of Today

Through the concepts of FIRST, students are introduced to the engineering principles needed to design and build a robot for a competition against other teams.




We focus on many different fields; mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, & programming. Using aspects from each field, we design a robot that will complete missions and tasks during competitions using various mechanisms.



We fabricate and build a lot of our own parts and assemblies, while also getting some supplies directly from FIRST. All mechanisms are crucial to the performance of our robots, which is why we strive to fabricate the best mechanisms for each set of challenges.


We participate in two competitions every year, each with upwards of 50 teams attending. Our goal for every year is to reach Worlds, which is an extremely high honor for FRC teams.

First Time at Worlds

The team's third year in operation was already the year they were able to go to the FIRST Championship competition in Atlanta, GA.
