Cedarcrest High School

FIRST Robotics

Kevin Ross and Mike Miyoshi, Advisor

The Cedarcrest FIRST Robotics teams are for any student who is interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics). We design, build and and compete with robots in two programs. The FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Competition. Our teams meet after school with mentors from industry. FIRST is a national program (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) that has been doing robotic competitions since 1992. The Cedarcrest team was started in 2012 and usually has between 25 and 40 students. No experience is required. Students will learn how to design and build machines, work as a team and work with mentors. We do several competition events during the year. The FIRST Tech Challenge runs in the fall. The FIRST Robotics Competition runs January to April.

During the rest of the year, our team does community events and outreach projects. We built a 10 barrel T-shirt cannon that we take to parades, sporting events and other opportunities in the community.
