Team 172, the Northern Force, is made up of students from Falmouth and Gorham High Schools who work together to build a 100+ pound competition robot in six weeks.
Each year, FIRST teams from around the world are presented with a different challenge. Last year’s challenge was to design and build a robot to place hatch panels onto rockets in order to secure inflatable balls.
Adult mentors work side-by-side with students throughout the season. Students gain confidence, develop strong leadership skills, experience working in teams and learn new technical skills – skills not taught in high school – that create the foundation for a successful future:
- Computer-aided Design
- Project Management
Through FIRST robotics, many students discover a passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The majority of our students continue their education in STEM majors and some have won FIRST scholarships.
This year we need to raise over $27,000 for robot parts, transportation and competition fees. We need your help to continue our success. Please consider sponsoring our team.
