"To promote STEM education within our community through the use of a FIRST® Robotics team."
FRC Team 5030: The Second Mouse. Our first season, the team earned a spot at the World Championship by receiving the Rookie All-Star award. Additionally, our team has been awarded the Industrial Design award. Last season we advanced to the World Championship from being the Winning Alliance Captain at the NYC Regional.
Under a limited time span of 6 weeks, teams of students grades 9-12 mentored by professionals use teamwork to design a team "brand," fundraise for their team, as well as to build, program, and design an industrial-sized robot to be used in a difficult and competitive field game.
Our team, the Second Mouse, is comprised of students in grades 9-12 from various cities in central New York, such as Whitesboro, New Hartford, Sauquoit, and Utica.
