FRC team 6325, Reset Robotics, is a newly founded, fully independent, FIRST Robotics Competition Team based in Alpharetta, Georgia. Made up of students from over 5 different schools, we are dedicated to sharing our love of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to everyone we meet. To us, FIRST is about so much more than just the competition. It is about learning new skills and making new friends. It is about building a team of leaders who want to make a difference, and then actually going out and making a difference in not only our community, but around the world. We are far from a traditional rookie FRC team and we plan on proving that this season.
FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) — a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity whose mission is to help develop students into tomorrow’s science and technology leaders and innovators — uses young people’s interest in, and fascination with, robots as the “honey” to draw them into a progression of fun, engaging robotics and research programs. In the process, they learn the importance of team building and mutual respect, gain self-confidence, and develop crucial leadership and life skills, as well as master much-in-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) knowledge. They are transforming into tomorrow’s leaders.
Kids building robots is a clever disguise for a rapidly expanding community devoted to altering our culture into one where scientists and engineers are celebrated and revered on the same level as athletes and celebrities. The goal of FIRST® is to open doors for all kids so that they may discover new interests and pathways, leading them to careers in science and engineering that they might never have considered. FIRST does this through four main programs: FIRST® Robotics Competiton, FIRST® Tech Challenge, FIRST® Lego League, and Junior FIRST® Lego League.
