We are first robotics competition team 6705 :: WildCat 5e
Our mission is to encourage future innovators by fostering a passion in science and technology. We provide opportunities for students in engineering, computer science, and business unavailable in school. We hope to expand students' knowledge and interest in topics ranging from brand design to CAD to programming.
Often referred to as “varsity sport for the mind,” FIRST stands for "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology." The mission of FIRST, founded by inventor Dean Kamin, is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders.
In the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. Teams compete under strict rules, with limited resources, and during an intense six-week time limit. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get.
