To our community, we’re a group of students who build robots. To our neighboring schools, we’re the kids with the crazy cow mascot. To our teachers, we’re the ones that work late into the night. When asked why we put so much time and effort into robotics, our answer is simple: FIRST is more than robots and competitions. It’s about learning valuable life skills and making connections with other people and groups. It’s about discovering a newfound passion in STEM and preaching about its importance. And more than building a robot, it’s about building a team of leaders who want to make a difference.
