Northshore High School's FIRST Robotics Team 1912 Combustion, located in Slidell, Louisiana, was established in the fall of 2005 by a small group of seniors. Since then, we have expanded into a diverse family of mentoring professionals and enthusiastic students from all grades. As we implemented the values and goals of FIRST throughout the seasons, every student was able to leave the team enriched with vital science, engineering, and real-life skills. The overwhelming task of building a functioning, effective robot within six weeks challenges students to communicate, cooperate, and learn as a team. Throughout this intense timeframe team members absorb everything from project management to programming and power-drilling, and become dedicated to promoting science and technology. Our love for teamwork and engineering extends into the off-season with demos, volunteering, workshops, and camps throughout the region. With so many places to go and events to run, students here at Northshore discover that building the robot is only the beginning of their FIRST experience.
For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a distinctive style of sport designed to challenge the mind instead of the body in order to help foster a love for science and engineering in young adults. FIRST challenges its members to "transform our culture" using unique methods to educate their communities. Each year a new game is unveiled with its own unique challenges and obstacles to overcome. Teams across the world must.. Read morehttp://www.usfirst.org/
