We Build Minds. We are a
group of adult mentors and High School
students who get together as a team to
design and build robots within a six week
time frame. Once the six weeks are over, we
will bag and
our robot with the anticipation of being
able to meet up with 40 other teams to
compete in a arena setting, to use the robot
in a skills competition. As a group we
educate both the public and students about
Science and Technology through FIRST.
Our group also works with Junior High School
students to teach them about Science and
Technology through Tetrix/Lego Robotics FTC
program and prepare
them for the High School team.
We Love to Build Robots.
Some of the schools in our area aren't lucky
enough to have a Robotics Program, and the
schools that do, generally, do not accept
students from outside their school.
With our Robotics
Program we accept students from any school
including home school,
as long as they follow our rules of respect
for others, respect for safety and respect
for tools. They must also have a
passing grade in school and the desire to
work with others in a friendly, fun
"To transform our Culture by creating a
world where Science and Technology are
celebrated and where young people dream of
becoming Science and Technology heroes".
-Dean Kamen, Founder-
Our Mission is to inspire young people to

programs that build Science, Engineering and
Technology skills, that inspire innovation,
and that foster well-rounded life
capabilities, including self-confidence,
communication, and leadership.
