Who We Are
It is the mission of Grizzly Robotics to foster self-confidence, critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills in our members by engaging them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based activities. Students are introduced to engineering and business concepts through management, design, and construction of robots that compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Our goal is to impact our community and culture by inspiring students to pursue higher education and careers in STEM.
Since the beginning, safety has always been our priority. Basics such as Goggles and no Jewelry in the shop is always followed. Hoping to encourage other teams to do the same, we have made a series of safety videos and given them to other teams to encourage safety and responsibility. We'd like to encourage each and every team to follow FIRST's Safety manual. For your convenience we have included the 2017 Safety Manual by FIRST®
