Fruitport Robotics Teams

Why robotics?

In the Fruitport District, FIRST Robotics teams are in our high school (FRC), our middle school (FTC), and in our elementary schools (FLL and Jr. FLL).  We are the only district with FIRST Robotics programs available at all grade levels in Muskegon County!  Our district's vision is to enhance STEM education with robotics and where students of all grade levels can excel in the sciences.  FIRST Robotics is the catalyst to excite our students to seek out new challenges and learn new concepts that will propel them into today's technologically driven world.

 

These programs are supported through corporate sponsors, fundraisers, and donations.  If you would like to learn more about being a supporter, please click on the Contact Us tab.

What is First?

Mission

The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

About FIRST

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

FIRST is More Than Robots. FIRST participation is proven to encourage students to pursue education and careers in STEM-related fields, inspire them to become leaders and innovators, and enhance their 21st century work-life skills.
