We are a FIRST Robotics Team based out of Romeo High School in Romeo, Michigan.
Our team was seeded by a grant from FIRST in Michigan. This grant provided the money
to get our team going in the 2010-2011 school year. Now it’s up to our team, community,
school, and sponsors to keep our team going and growing.
Our team is committed to partnering with business, industry, and professional mentors
to give our kids the experiences and real world application in Science, Technology,
and Engineering. It’s not just about building robots—it’s about working with students
to push their boundaries of learning beyond what they will experience in the classroom.
It’s about getting our students to work as a team, under strict deadlines, to accomplish
something that these kids have never done before.
Starting this FIRST Robotics Team has been the easy part— the work is in keeping
it and making it grow. Will you help?
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded by
Dean Kamen in 1989 to encourage high school students to get involved in science
and technology. It is a non-profit organization that consists of over 2,000 teams
and organizes numerous competitions. The competitions consist of games or tasks
that change from year to year. See the FIRST website.
