We are changing the future through robotics and STEM
What is FRC Robotics?
FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics community that prepares young people for the future through a suite of inclusive, team-based robotics programs for ages 4-18 (PreK-12) that can be facilitated in school or in structured afterschool programs. Boosted by a global support system of volunteers, educators, and sponsors that include over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies, teams operate under a signature set of FIRST Core Values to conduct research, fundraise, design, build, and showcase their achievements during annual challenges.
About Team 8757 Geodebots
Nehemiah Community Empowerment Center was granted a NASA scholarship that allowed them to establish a legacy FRC team in the local Greensboro community. With our scholarship we created our first robotics team that consisted of 3 eigth graders and 3 high schoolers. Over the course of our season we had a blast, getting to meet each other for the first time and learning what it was like to build a robot from scratch.
