We are team # 114 from Los Altos High School, and ever since 1997, we have been participating in FIRST Robotics Competitions and have won some awards. We also outreach to others in the community, such as demoing our robot to preschoolers and inspiring FLL members to join FRC.
Below is an essay written for the NASA Grant:
Why We Fly (Our Goals & Philosophy)
“It’s not about the robot” – (Dean Kamen).
We believe that the purpose of robotics is not necessarily to build the best robot but to mold high school students to be the best future leaders of science and innovation. We start with ideas. To us, an idea is like a seed. Plant it. Nurture it. Watch it grow. This is the easiest part because everyone has ideas.
