SFHS FIRST Robotics Team, Mechanical Masterminds #7068, is launching our 3rd season by hosting an information meeting for the St. Francis community. We invite students, parents, teachers, and/or mentors to meet the coaches and current team members, see the robot, and learn about the season ahead. Refreshments will be provided.

We’re excited to participate in the 2020 FRC theme of INFINITE RECHARGE as part of a focus on sustainable and renewable energy. FIRST has partnered with Disney’s Star Wars “Force For Change” initiative. (View Theme Video)

Wondering about the impact of FIRST? Enjoy a few testimonies from those involved in our first two seasons…

FIRST Robotics was the most fun I ever had working so hard. I learned so much more than I imagined and can’t wait for next season.” SFHS Student

FIRST Robotics was a catalyst for developing leadership skills and was undoubtedly helpful in obtaining scholarships and internships. It helped create a network with future employers and has opened so many doors for me after graduation.” SFHS FIRST Robotics Alum

“Not all students enjoy sports, music, or theater. FIRST Robotics provided a positive extracurricular activity for my child.” SFHS Parent

FIRST Robotics has something for any interest area. Certainly, we build skills in science and technology, but also marketing, business presentations, social media, graphics, communications, project management, teamwork, and so much more.” SFHS Robotics Mentor

“We seek candidates that have been engaged in FIRST Robotics because they gain experiences that align with our values.” Industry Leader

FIRST is more than robots. The robots are a vehicle for students to learn important life skills.” Dean Kamen, FIRST Founder
