1374 Amped Up Robotics!
FRC Team 1374 Amped Up! Robotics was founded in 2016 on the basis of creating a safe and fun environment to foster STEM education. As a team, we encourage new students to learn about STEM, and integrating them into our robotics community. We have roughly 30 students on our team, ranging from ages 13-18.
FIRST ® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is the organization that runs the robotics league we compete in. Their goal, and subsequently ours, is to inspire young minds to get involved in STEAM fields. These include Science, Technology, Engineering, Art through creativity, and Math.
Last Year's Robot
Our robot from the 2018/2019 season, Deep Space Destination presented by The Boeing Company, is called the CRUNCH Family. The CRUNCH Family competed at two competitions; the Humber College District Event in Etobicoke and the Nipissing University District Event in North Bay.
One of our main focuses as a team that operates under FIRST ® is to positively impact and promote STEAM in our community. We do this by hosting and attending several events around the year, and by mentoring other FIRST teams such as FIRST LEGO League teams and Junior FIRST LEGO League teams in our community.
Our team is funded by a variety of public and private sponsors. We would like to thank all of our genorous sponsors for their continuous support! If your company would like to consider sponsoring us, we are available to book presentations at your company or business. We also accept leads for potential company sponsors!
