Phoenix, AZ, USA — Scottsdale based Provision Networks (http://www.provisionnetworks.net) sponsors future technology leaders in our community as the Desert Mountain Robotics Team advances to World FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) Championship in Houston, TX.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to generate an interest in engineering and math among today’s youth. The program serves as a vehicle to provide students with a hands-on learning experience in robotics while partnered with engineers to gain a full experience. Students develop life skills in the areas of team building, problem solving, communication, and leadership in a fun and exciting environment. Robotics provides students with practical learning opportunities about science, technology, engineering, and math.
Each schools team is given a task through a live broadcast from NASA, and then each team has six weeks to brainstorm, design, test, and build a robot to complete the assignment. The Desert Mountain High School Robotics Club has shown their engineering and design skills as they demonstrated the capabilities of their robot.
By joining a FIRST team, students are more likely to go to college, earn a higher GPA, and have more scholarship opportunities. These students will be the next generation of new hires for companies like Provision Networks, or the customers we serve. We are excited to see how far the Desert Mountain High School Robotics Club can go.
