“The FIRST Robotics Competition is not about machines; it is about the experience of people working together toward a shared goal.”
Welcome to the 2013-2014 FRC preseason!
Everyone on team 3142 “Aperture” is eagerly awaiting the announcement of this years challenge!
This year’s challenge will be announced internationally on January fourth. Until then we have lots of work to do to prepare for the competition. Lots of work goes into building a robot. However, hard work always pays off!
During our trip to St. Louis during the 2011-2012 season to attend the International Championship, our members met teams from all over the world and with the NASA Downlink ISS-Exposition 30 presentation, astronauts. With our new varsity status we are helping to elevate academics and place it on par with athletics. Sharing our chenille emblem design for the back of our letter jacket with other teams, we assist others in spreading the mission of FIRST.
Our successes are shared. With support from our community, Board of Education, school administration, STEM partners, and families we are able to make these connections. With their aid we are able to ascend to each new level gaining knowledge, experience, and learn the value of collaboration. We are very grateful for their support.
Now that you have found us, we hope that you will have a look at our newly developed website and see what we have that might assist you. If you are already part of the FIRST family we wish you good luck for your upcoming competitions and look forward to meeting you on the playing field! May gracious professionalism prevail and the best alliance win!
