Who Are We?
We are a FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Team. (You can learn more at firstinspires.org) We are composed up of high school students in Putnam County, grades 9-12.
What do we do?
Every January, we are given a challenge to build a robot to compete in a game. We build the robot from scratch in 6 weeks, then a few weeks later, we go to competition with it. We also do a lot of community service.
What Do You Mean “Challenge”?
Exactly that. In the past years, we’ve had to shoot Frisbees and climb a pyramid, shoot basketballs and balance on a see saw, and pick up inner tubes and launch a small robot to climb a pole. Every year is totally different.
Why Should I Join?
Any student on the team will tell you that this team has made a lasting impact on their life. You make a lot of new friends, and you learn so much without even realizing it.
