Metro Tech Robotics participates in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, www.usfirst.org
) family of programs. The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to become scientists, engineers and technologists.
Knight Tech Robotics, as we are known, works year-round on various robotics projects such as the FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Competition. The team is also responsible for raising all of their own funds through fundraising, grants and donations. The team also develops a business plan which encompasses all aspects of the team.
This year, we are pleased to have the support of the AZ Science Foundation and NASA. Both institutions have provided Knight Tech Robotics with valuable grants!
