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. Team 66 started the Ypsilanti STEMM Middle College in 2013, based on FIRST's Principles, where all students are deeply engaged in engineering design processes. Serving an at-risk, urban population, Grizzly Robotics impact on the students and community has been immeasurable. We are truly changing the world, one life at a time.
