Area 5188 Classified Robotics is a FIRST FRC robotics team. This is our fourth year as a team made up of high school students and college mentors. In the past, we have won the Crossroads Regional, Highest Seeded Rookie, Rookie All-star, Entrepreneurship awards two years in a row, placed second at a district event, competed at Worlds, and many other accomplishments. At Worlds, we were in the Newton Division both times. This year, we are planning to keep striving to better our team and the community around us. Wish us luck in our next season!
What is FIRST?
What is FIRST?
FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology.”
“Our mission 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.”
FIRST is an organization that allows students to learn about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) subjects and responsibilities. It allows students to grow into future scientists and engineers. FIRST is also a great way to be with good influences, and make closeknit relationships with other students—like a second family. Friends from all over are made from interacting with different teams, building social and business skills.
