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.
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 SRI International, The Woodside High School Foundation, the Sequoia Union High School District, Intuitive Surgical, Campbell Precision Sheetmetal, SolidWorks, REIGN Real Estate Service, Pentair Thermal Management, TE Connectivity Foundation, Google, The Brin Wojcicki Foundation, and a generous network of families and friends.
This year's FRC game is Aerial Assist! Aerial Assist is played by two competing alliances on a flat, 27 x 54 foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two and a half minute match. The more Alliances score their ball in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their Alliance receives
