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 funding from FIRST, NASA & the Argosy Foundation which allowed us to establish a legacy FRC team in the local Greensboro community.  We have partnered with The Forge for designing and welding capabilities.

 

With our scholarship, we created our first robotics team that consisted of 3 eigth graders and 3 high schoolers. Over the course of our 1st season we had a blast, getting to meet each other for the first time, developing teamwork and leadership skills while learning how to build a robot from scratch. - It was AWESOME!

Our teens are pioneers in our community by creating career awareness and diversity in these lucrative fields.  At Nehemiah, we are pulling back the layers and finding that hidden gem (talent)  that is already inside of us. We are

Creating Diversity in the STEM & Robotics Fields

The job search website Zippia estimates only 4.4% of people in the field of robotics are Black or African American and only 8.5% are women. The Nehemiah Community Empowerment Center is working to change that through their robotics team — the “GeodeBots.”
