Mills Robotics Team 253 is a non-profit team representing Mills High School. Our team has been fully led and organized by high school students since 1998. Our team is divided into four departments: Construction, Electrical Engineering, Programming, and Public Relations, each with its own manager and subsection. We work together to build a complete robot in just six weeks for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, otherwise known as the FRC. Since we have such a limited build season for our robot, members dedicate dozens of hours to working on the robot throughout the build season, and some put over 100 hours into this project. During club meetings before build season, our upperclassmen members work hard to teach their skills to the newer members to continue the club’s knowledge. By participating in this club, our members learn important skills they may use in the future, such as programming and engineering skills, as well as more fundamental skills such as problem solving and teamwork.
In this coming year, we will meet in the Makerspace at Mills High School at 3:30 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
