Team Overview

Team Overview

    The Gladstone Robotics team is part of the “F.I.R.S.T.” Robotics Competition (FRC) that encourages high school-aged students to venture beyond comfort zones and learn valuable academic and life skills. The skills we learn include computer-aided design (CAD), Computer aided manufacturing (CAM) , electrical and mechanical engineering concepts, computer programming, web design, animation, marketing, problem solving, time management, organization, communication, and collaborative team building.

 

    Our mentors and parents make it their goal to help us learn to use our talents and resources in making our visions a reality. They teach us skills through hands-on learning while working on our robots and taking them to competition. This organization truly bridges the gap between school and real life applications of STEM technology. It is exciting for us to see application of science and math while building and programming our robot for competition with other teams nationally and internationally.
