Spreading Engineering and Technology Awareness since 1999

Who are we?

We are FIRST team 353! Every year we participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition, where we are given 6 weeks to design, prototype, built, and test a robot to compete at regional events with teams from across the world. Along the way, we impact our school and our community, with many different events to spread knowledge of Engineering in Technology.


Our club is supported through generous sponsors. They provide us funding in order to support our team and build amazing robots every year.


Our team is ran by various students in our school ranging from from 10th to 12th grade.

Join Us

Making a robot requires lots of effort from a lot of different people. We are always looking for more mentors and students to help out.
