We are Saints Robotics, Team 1899, a FIRST Robotics Competition team based out of Interlake High School in Bellevue, Washington. We strive to engage students in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by allowing them to work on the construction of physical robots.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a non-profit organization based in Manchester, New Hampshire. Founded in 1989 by Inventor Dean Kamen and Professor Woodie Flowers, FIRST aims "to create a world where science and technology are celebrated… where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes."
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition organized by FIRST. FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Each year, teams of students compete to build robots of various shapes and sizes that can complete specific tasks. The FRC Kickoff introduces the new game for that year and marks the start of the six-week build season.
