What is FIRST Robotics? FIRST Robotics is a competitive team sport for your mind. FIRST Robotics is a Organization in which high school students build a programmed robot, and compete in a theme with and against other robots. Teams must also market themselves and find their own sponsors. We compete in the FRC Robotics Competition. http://www.firstinspires.org
Our first meeting will be held in late August - check back soon for more information, or stop by and talk to Mrs. Dyar in B202 (EPIC Engineering room).
What's new this year? We do not yet know if this year will look like a traditional year. We will start with virtual meetings. The club is open to anyone who would like to join and learn more about robotics and we will have a point system for students to earn a spot on the competitive team for the spring, which we are optimistic will still happen.
Team Nickname: Steel Talons
Who are the Steel Talons you may be asking? The Steel Talons is the team name chosen by the Mill Creek FIRST Robotics team after the first two years, to represent the strength of spirit of our team in addition to our school spirit for our Hawks. Our team is composed of all different talents because we believe everybody brings something to the table. We have different teams for programming, mechanical, safety, electrical, and marketing. Each team works within their specialization but then we come together to be greater as a whole.
We are very grateful to our Platinum level sponsors: GCPS, Bosch and Infinite Energy.
