Our FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team is a part of the Pacific Northwest District and has competed with teams from around the world. In 2017 we qualified for the World Championship in Houston, TX which was an amazing experience for the team. During FRC build season our members put in hundreds of hours of hard work and dedication to build the best robot we can. Off-season it is our mission to expand the influence of FIRST throughout our community, giving people life changing opportunities in STEM fields and more.

In the fall we participate in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and use it as a way to introduce new members to robotics and skills such as programming, design, fabrication, business, and marketing. This prepares them for the FRC build season starting in January.
