Ignite Robotics, FIRST Robotics Team 6829, was founded in the summer of 2017 to meet the needs of high school students in the community who do not attend a school with a robotics program. Our membership is comprised of students from public, private, and home schools. Our team fosters a supportive and family-like environment for students of all experience levels, skill sets, and backgrounds-we are open to all students and mentors without discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or learning differences.
Ignite Robotics’ mission is to inspire and develop strong technical, business, and leadership skills in high school students by exposing them to challenging hands-on engineering projects, where they tackle challenges from beginning to end, supported by experienced mentors and focused training.
Our valued mentors are here to teach and guide students. Their leadership and experience allow our students to achieve their goals in present and future endeavors.
Ignite Robotics supports the mission of the FIRST Inspires organization to introduce and develop interest in STEM to our community. In our short existence as a team, (August 2017) we have provided judging and refereeing for First Lego League teams, volunteered as a team at several FIRST competition events, and have done numerous demonstrations in the community. Outreach is an important element at Ignite Robotics, and we hope to continue to build our outreach program, promoting STEM and the values of the FIRST Inspires organization.
