FIRST is an international organization aimed at inspiring students to develop skills in engineering and technology. FIRST is the foundation for the FRC, FTC, and FLL competitions, held annually. The program allows high school students to work side by side with professional adult mentors, in order to learn skills varying from animation to engineering, business and shop fabrication. 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.
Team 100 would not be able to continue our participation in FRC if it weren't for the help of our wonderful sponsors.
Our sponsors include: Sequoia Union High School District, Pentair Thermal Management, TE Connectivity Foundation, Carlmont PTSA, The Tate Family, Peninsula Infiniti, Intuitive Surgical, Harmonic Drive LLC, SRI International, NTT Group, NASA, Alan Steel and Supply Company, SolidWorks, The Brin Wojcicki Foundation, and Parents, grandparents, and friends.
This year's FRC game is RECYCLE RUSH! Recycle Rush is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season.
