We are a Farmington Public School's United Robotics Team for all 9th - 12th grade students. Our team consist of members from Farmington High School, North Farmington High School, Harrison High School and Farmington Central High School. Through competing in FRC® competitions, we strive to gain STEM and leadership experience, along with giving back to our community.
To inspire, empower and create a bridge between school and the corporate world by building essential leadership skills and providing hands on experience in STEM via FIRST®.
A community focused on improving the future through STEM exposure at an early age.
The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
Let's get ready to POWER UP! Once again, our wonderful sponsor Bosch graciously allowed us to use their cafeteria and other supplies for our kickoff event on Saturday, January 6th. The team arrived at 9:00am and participated in fun team bonding activities, while gaining background information on FIRST, FRC Competitions and the Hackbot Design/Strategy Brainstorming Process. (loosely based on the Deep Dive and PLTW brainstorming strategies) Next, after the video was shown, the Hackbots dove into trying to figure out how to score the most points. Through both group and partner brainstorming sessions, each student left the kickoff excited to start designing and building in the weeks to follow.
